Two events have taken place this year and we are planning many more in 2019.  Please keep a watch on the web site for details.

Our CRA guide, Carol Craze took us on a shortened but fascinating tour of the village and its surroundings, a tour of the ancient village church and finally to the London Inn for lunch where we enjoyed good company and good food, all around a blazing coal fire…
