Village Trail

New village history trail

While you’re taking a walk around the village, why not find out who lived in the houses, what they did and how they lived in years gone by. As well as the butcher, baker and candlestick maker, there were shoemakers, clockmakers, blacksmiths, steam engine drivers, wheelwrights, dressmakers, millers and many more. Just download and print out the trail and explore the village in a new way. 

The group started back in 2007 and we consider ourselves a very informal group so please feel free to join us at any of our meetings or events. We discuss various topics of local history as well as organise trips, walks and talks with a variety of guest speakers.

Next meeting: Date to be confirmed

​We welcome new members so why not join us at our next meeting.
