Village Walks

For some months now, the Henham village magazine, The Dragon, has been reproducing a series of suggested walks around our village. These walks had previously also been available for quite a number of years for sale in the village shop, but the original stock has been exhausted. 


The editorial team of The Dragon and those involved in setting out the routes, etc. have agreed that I can further reproduce them on this site, but introducing them in pace with the current editions of the magazine. At the time of setting up this page, (Feb 2012), five have been published with another eight to go.

Before you view the individual walks, all of which are circular and start from the war memorial in the centre of the village, please take time to view the Introduction which contains important information - Bill Bates
