We have had two very successful evening walks around the village, both events were fully booked with 15 local people each time.

Dave Hunt the Claro Community Archaeology Group chairman lead both walks. Meeting at the village hall the walk took them around the village looking at the vernacular buildings and other sites of interest. Places of interest included the Quaker burial ground, sites of the old public houses and the treasure trove, site of a bronze age burial mound which was leveled in the C19th to make way for the parish church.

The walk concluded with a brief discussion about Manor Farm; which is believed to be the oldest timber framed medieval property in the village. We invited all present to the Scotton Feast Day on Saturday 24th Sept were a more detailed exhibition would be held.
