Members of The March Society enjoyed a pleasant and informative evening stroll through parts of Wimblington village.

Chairman, Jennifer Lawler, provided background information about some of its most interesting buildings.

The visit began by looking at the interior St Peter’s Church and learning about several past Wimblington residents who are buried in the churchyard.

The restored Italian marble War Memorial provided much interest.

The history and development of the adjacent Thomas Eaton Primary Academy was outlined and the group then looked at several listed and other heritage buildings in Church Street, Addison Road and Norfolk Street.

The visit concluded at the, now sold, Methodist Chapel in Norfolk Street.

The next event of The March Society is on Wednesday June 13 at 7pm in March Library when historian Mike Petty will talk on ‘Cambridgeshire History on Your Computer: the Library on Your Laptop’. All welcome. Members £2, non-members £3, with tea, coffee, biscuits and the latest news.
