Chedham's Yard

Talk on Restoration of Chedham’s Yard in Wellesbourne – Friday, 20 July, 2012

There will be a talk by David Close who is closely involved with the Chedham's Yard project.  Since winning the BBC's £1million Restoration competition in 2006, work on restoring Chedham's Yard has been underway with the restored Yard due to open to the public this Spring.  Five generations of Chedham family were connected with the yard before it closed in 1965. The restored Blacksmith's and Wheelwright's ‘shops give an insight into the crafts of a bygone era and are an intriguing ‘time capsule’.

Doors will open at 7.30pm, Tickets will only cost £2 each & refreshments (not included in the ticket price) will be available.

This site is maintained by villagers of Oxhill for the benefit of the community and those interested in the history, news and activities that make the village such a pleasant place to live.
