Introduction to our Village
Henham remains a rural community although now perhaps better described as a 'community in a rural setting.' As with most other villages in the area, there are few whose income is dependant on the land and the majority of working residents travel away from the area to seek a living. However on the positive side we retain our own church, primary school, village shop with a post office, public house, village hall, church hall and community centre. Our population is approximately 1250 plus.

A revised date will be provided in due course.
