Guided Walks around the Village Centre
WHS celebrated the end of lockdown with two guided history walks around the village in August and September.
We followed best practice guidance on reducing risk of infection as part of our Visit England accreditation, with reduced numbers on the walks.
The walks, led by experienced WHS members, included The Square and Bridge Street. We covered the early origins of Wickham, including recent finds at Wykeham Vale behind School Road, key buildings like the Barracks, Square Cow and Chesapeake Mill and our medieval Square, said to be the second largest village square in England
Our village walks will be back next summer – watch this space for announcements.
If you live locally, then why not plan your own Wickham history walk?
