Revisiting an Old Buckenham walk

 Local history in comfort

The group at Buckenham Castle

Were you unable to come on the recent Heritage wellbeing walk? Those taking part walked from All Saints church to New Buckenham and back - via the castle and priory site in Abbey Road, St Martin's church and the 'new' castle, hearing about the history of these important places for our local heritage along the way. Perhaps you did come but would like to hear the history again, this time from a comfortable seat with a glass of wine?

Come along at 7.30pm on this Saturday 20 November to Old Buckenham Village Hall for the 'Heritage illustrated talk'. You will be shown pictures of the places that were  visited and will be told a few bits of local history that were not covered fully on the walk. The event is free, and a glass of wine or soft drink, and nibbles, will be provided to enjoy while the talk takes place. 

Donations for the All Saints Restoration fund will be welcome as there is a need to rebuild the funds (much depleted after completion of the re-thatching and the impact of such a long period of church closure on donations) in the expectation of more work being needed to this ancient church in the near future. If you haven't yet picked up a copy of the history guide book these will be available on the night, or you can always pick one up from the church (suggested minimum donation £2).

Looking forward to seeing you on the evening of Saturday 20 November.
