Guide: Peter Gulland
Peter Gulland, a local historian, will guide us on a two mile walk, some on cobbled streets, around the historic market town of Haddenham, through the three hamlets which formed the origins of the mediaeval village, to include witchert buildings and walls, a Quaker Cemetery, the old market and the Minster Church. Tea etc., included in the entry fee, will conclude the tour at the Bradmoor teashop at about 3.45 pm. (The Church of St Mary’s is well worth a visit before the tour at 2.00 pm).
