2nd Heritage Photo Group Meet is 19th May 2pm at Scoulton Village Hall

The first meeting of the Wayland Heritage Photo Group got off to a good start with ten members gathering to setting out plans for future activities, this was followed by a walk around Watton. With thanks to Paul Adcock and Julian Horn the group got to see some highs and lows of Watton that are not normally open to the public. You will see from the photos below that we explored the underground tunnels, which are thought to be around 200 years old, under the Clock Tower.

Then the group went up on to the roof of the building behind the Clock Tower to look at the timber framed core of the building adjoining the tower. Inside part of the building the original exterior wall is still visible with a rare example, for Watton, of decorated plaster. 

The next meeting on 19th May will meet at the Scoulton village hall at 2pm. Julia Grover from the Scoulton History Group will show the group some early photographs of the village and then we will take a walking tour of the area. If you are planning on coming or have difficulties with transport please give me a email on or phone 01953 880216.
