Parish Church

The Hundred Parishes Society

What's on

Here we list some activities that relate to local heritage, countryside, wildlife, exercise, culture or conservation. Please also see the Attractions pages for places that are open on a regular basis. If you are tempted by one of these specific places or events, we encourage you to make a full day of your visit. You might like to print off a nearby walk or the introduction to the parish and see if you can track down some more of its heritage.  You are advised to check with the venue or event website for any changes to times, etc displayed here

If you know of any additional forthcoming event within the Hundred Parishes that offers an opportunity to learn, enjoy or participate, please contact us using the Feedback option at the foot of the website menu.
