We are planning a members visit to Harbury, a village with a long history. People have been living here for 3000 years and it is mentioned in the Doomsday Book 1086. The name is derived from”Hereburgh’s Byrig”…….an Anglo Saxon term meaning a fortified village. Hereburgh is presumed to be a female leader of an Iron Age tribe who settled here in c 500 BC.
Would you like to learn more? Then do join us, for what I am sure will be an interesting visit.
Arrangements. (maximum20 people)
Meet our guide to begin at 2pm, in the Village Hall car park off Constance Drive.
Tour will last approx. 1/1 and a half hours ……….short inclines in places.
Linda Ridgely will kindly offer refreshments in her 16/17 th century cottage after the walk.
The Heritage Room can be open from 4pm to peruse their archive.
A donation towards the Heritage Fund per person would be very much appreciated.
