The Wickham History Walks are led by experienced WHS members. We cover 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 next guided walks are

  • Friday 2nd August at 10:30am
  • Saturday 3rd August at 10:30am

Meet at the bus stop, Wickham Square. The walk costs £5 for a one and a half hour stroll around the village with a local history guide – find out why a horse used to be a regular at Greens, how Chesapeake Mill got its name and much more.
