Archived News - Church Trail
Am I the only one who finds Sunday a dreary day? Well, there's no excuse for being bored this weekend, if you're keen on history.
History fans are in for a treat in Eaton Bray this Sunday.
That's when St Mary's Church is holding an open afternoon - with a pick of the parish record books on view. Some of the record books will date back to the 16th century.
And if that wasn't enough to get you out and about, there'll be photographs and background about the history of the church and the village, too. You can drop in between 2pm and 5pm, and refreshments will be on hand.
What a great chance to turn back time and forget about the future - i.e., Monday morning!
