Chipping Warden Village Hall

Before HS2 build bridges, tunnels, tracks and stations, they are undertaking the largest programme of archaeology ever in the UK.
On the 11th June in Chipping Warden, they are holding an archaeological presentation about the scale of works being undertaken in your area and the findings to date.
Lead archaeologist for HS2, Nick Finch, will be bring along some of the items found and answer any questions you may have.
This event is organised as a Community Event by Fusion working on behalf of HS2. More information here on the HS2 web site.
Saturday 29th June, 9:00am to 10:00am
Canons Ashby invites you to join them and discover the moths that call Canons Ashby home. See the moth surveying traps being opened on Saturday morning and have a look at some fascinating specimens brought by our moth expert. (If you drive past on the night of the 28th June and wonder what the lights are- they’re to attract the moths.) Please wear sturdy waterproof footwear as this will involve walking over uneven ground. £3 per person, does not include admission after the event. Pre-booking is essential (see this page in the Canons Ashby pages on the National Trust website).
