Here we list some activities that relate to local heritage, countryside, wildlife, exercise, culture or conservation. Please also see the Attractions pages for places that are open on a regular basis. If you are tempted by one of these specific places or events, we encourage you to make a full day of your visit. You might like to print off a nearby walk or the introduction to the parish and see if you can track down some more of its heritage. Events may be subject to Covid restrictions or reassessment of Covid risks.
 
If you know of any additional forthcoming event within the Hundred Parishes that offers an opportunity to learn, enjoy or participate, please contact us using the Feedback option at the foot of the website menu.
