Attend our flagship award-winning Village Tour and meet many costumed characters from past centuries along with some surprises on the way!
During the tour, you'll see the flint-built St Peter's Church and find out more about its long history. Hear about conditions in the workhouse, the Newbolts' breakfast concerts for hundreds of fashionable people, the tower used in the Napoleonic wars, famous (and infamous) local residents, and our ancient seat of local government for the area.
Tours are conducted in English for a maximum of 5 groups of 10 visitors, and cover less than a mile of flat walking, but do involve standing for a number of 5-minute presentations. They include a break for tea or coffee (charge of £2) (except for evening, or inclement weather tours). Allow two and a half hours for the tour. Booking essential with suggested £5pp donation.
During wet weather, tours takes place entirely within the Church. Children are welcome on the tours, but we suggest that ages 10 and above will more fully appreciate the experience.
Access for visitors with disabilities.
Light lunches can be made available after the tour in the Red Lion, opposite the Church, by calling Kim on 01843 600895.
