After a well attended September meeting with many interesting topics covered, we are looking forward to October’s meeting.

We continue to get questions sent to us from outside the village concerning family history, locations questions or enquiries about such things as the early history of the London Road. Many stimulating topics arise at each meeting and perhaps we could tempt you to come along and throw in your `Threepenny worth’. As well as the extensive library of books relating to the Parish we can utilise the records and photographs to answer most questions but just occasionally those present are stumped.

For instance, the Barley Mow used to be the last building in the village heading East and this is the junction where Pilgrims Way runs parallel with London Road. Which is the original route through the village?

Come along to the October 10th meeting at 8pm in the History Room at the rear of Robinsons (just off South Street at the entrance to Parsonage Farm) and join in. Contact Mark Palethorpe ( or Audrey Long 850427 for details.
