Please select one of the sections from the menu on the left. If this is your first visit, we recommend that you start with the Introduction. If you like what we are doing, please support us by going to the Membership section where you can apply to join the Hundred Parishes Society at a cost of only £10 a year for a household or organisation. Members receive monthly emails with news, snippets of local history and suggested activities that are consistent with the Society's aims.
We encourage you to return regularly to this website, perhaps to read about another parish or notable person or look for an interesting walk, and in particular to check What's On. We hope you will be inspired to discover more about the Hundred Parishes and to explore this special area.
Members are welcome to copy the text and images on this website for personal use or to pass them on in the interests of spreading knowledge and understanding of the Hundred Parishes, but no content of this website may be used or reproduced for commercial purposes.
Essex Radio - interview 15 October 2017 with the Society's scretary, Ken McDonald
Just in case you would like to listen to Ken fielding questions from Peter Holmes live on radio, a recording of the programme can be picked up online for the next 30 days at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05h9876#play .
The interview starts 2 hours and 11 minutes into the programme - you can drag the slider on the bar to take you to that point.
The What's On page is regularly updated for local events offering an opportunity to engage with heritage, culture or the outdoors generally. Please consider adding this page to your website Favourites.
Our Attractions pages list other regular opportunities, whilst our Walks from railway stations can be downloaded and enjoyed at any time.
Can you identify the photo?
We occasionally change the image on the right of the banner that appears at the top of each page of the website. If you recognise the location, please use Feedback (at the bottom of the menu on the left) to tell us where it is. Of course, it's somewhere in the Hundred Parishes. The last view was of Duxford where the Society held its annual general meeting in September after a guided walk around the village.
If you have taken a good panorama photo that we might use, please email it to email@example.com .
