This event has been postponed and is being rescheduled as an enhanced visit for the Spring – details to follow.

****************

Following our most enjoyable visit to Crawley in July, we are very fortunate that Geoff Phillpotts and his colleagues at the Wickham History Society have very kindly offered to give us a guided walk around this fascinating village, which is both a conservation area and a thriving community.

The walk will start from the bus stop in Wickham Square and guests should be aware that although there are pavements along the roads, there are also steps, some tracks and through traffic.  We are sure though, that the history of this fascinating large village will be well worth learning.  So, if you want to know why Chesapeake Mill is so called, why there are beautiful Georgian houses lining the Square, and why the Fair is always on May 20th, do join us for an interesting walk followed by tea and cake in the Tea Rooms on the Square.

There is parking in the Square for 80p for 3 hours or free parking in the signposted long-term car park, which is a 300-yard walk from the Square. The 69 bus runs from Fareham to Winchester every hour, the nearest railway station is Fareham, and if anyone would like transport to or from the station please do let us know.  The cost of this visit will be £12.50, to include tea, and with all remaining funds going to Wickham History Society.

Booking again will be informal via events@hampshirearchivestrust.co.uk or 01489 573056 with payments by cheque or bank transfer (details will be given after initial contact). If you would prefer not to appear in any photographs of the event that may be published in the newsletter or on the Trust’s website or social media accounts, please let us know when booking.

We look forward to welcoming you again, as we slowly return to the new ‘normal’.

If there are any places you would like to suggest for visits or walks, our Events Team would, as ever, be very pleased to hear from you.
