Local archaeologist, Richard Grove, will be leading us on a walk around the east side of the village, pointing out the archaeological and historical features. Previously Richard has given us a very interesting guided walk around the west side of the village and we have invited him back, by popular demand. We will meet in the village hall car park and will return to the village hall for tea, coffee and cake at around 12 noon.
