Do you enjoy mooching around the little nooks and crannies of Haddenham?
It's a lovely pastime, especially if you have visitors and are looking to enjoy some fresh air with them while discovering the village's little thoroughfares and alleyways. The older parts of the village have many such delights.
To guide you, Ken Perry's new Village Walks booklet has recently been published, thanks to a grant from the Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust.
The booklet is the first in a possible collection and covers an area from Fort End to Church End.
The publication provides a 14 page illustrated booklet guiding a circular walk round most of the conservation area and it gives a good outline of the history of the village.
The walk takes about an hour and a quarter.
The key navigation points begin at Banks Park, but the walk could start at any point on the route.
Haddenham Village Walks is available from the museum (see here) and 'Blooming Fruity' on Banks Parade. The price is £3 (or £2.50 to members of the Haddenham Museum Trust).
