                             Sunday, September 16th. HERITAGE DAY

National Heritage Week is taking place during September and Odiham will celebrate our heritage on Sunday 16th September.

The Cross Barn will be open from 1pm until 5pm with various displays.  There will be cream teas available to purchase.

We plan to organise a walk during the morning to the cemetery to see inside one of the two chapels which are not normally open to the public. The cemetery was consecrated in 1860 by the Bishop of Winchester and the chapels ceased to be used in 1940. From there it is a short walk to the Pest House, our local mini heritage centre.

We hope to see you at this event and more information about it will be available shortly.
