Village Walks: Points of Interest

If you’re out and about in the village do keep your eyes out for the becks and watercourses  where you will see some interesting signs of wildlife and wildlife habitat.  We have compiled a list of things to see and where to see them as “Points of Interest” or “POIs”.
