Great Wilbraham

book_exchange-little-picDespite a donation of books after the table top sale, we still have spaces for more books in the exchange. There are books for all ages, though more books for teenagers would be welcome. The clear plastic collecting box is  outside my house again to receive books: 13, Toft Lane. Please remember to only put in books that qualify as a good read, and are suitable. Thank you for your continued support, and keep reading!


Little Wilbraham


Little Wilbraham is a village approximately 1 mile west of Great Wilbraham.  The village name is derived from the name of a Saxon princess, Wilbur.   Both the villages of Little Wilbraham and Great Wilbraham were linked with the Knights Templars, growing food for the hospice at Denny Abbey.

Six Mile Bottom


Six Mile Bottom existed in name before it developed as a settlement, deriving this name from its distance from the Newmarket Racecourse, and the fact that it lies in a valley bottom.   There has always been a connection with hunting and shooting in the area for many hundreds of years, including royal patronage.
