This year's (2013) Heritage Event at Parlington turned out to be very successful, we were heavily oversubscribed although on the day we did get a few "no shows". The weather which was predicted to be heavy downfalls of rain in strong wind, turned out to be more benign, blustery winds and generally dry, just a short burst of rain as we rounded the corner by the old gamekeepers cottage.I think everyone enjoyed it, and although we over ran by about 30 minutes plus, taking 2 and a half hours, some of us retired to the Arabian Horse for a well deserved drink! Some news that perhaps surprised the visitors was the recently uncovered papers of a potential gift of the Triumphal Arch to the Americans in 1976 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of their Declaration of Independence. Clearly as the arch still dominates the countryside, it never happened, but an interesting tale itself. Further information is on the Parlington web site.

I'm NOT doing another Parlington walk/talk this coming September 2014, as part of the Heritage weekend, as per the one last year. Due to a number of changes, the old hall has been re-furbished and some new people are about to move in, as I have not met them I felt it would be inappropriate to host the walk and visit the hall. Without that as the key location the other aspects fall away in significance, so reluctantly I will not be doing it... maybe next year!

That's a shame, I enjoyed last year's walk. As you say, maybe next year ...

A post has been created regarding the prospect of adding information panels along the route of the old railway in Parlington. Maybe it would have benefitted from being posted here! The link is:
I hope people will respond and add their interest on my Facebook page about Parlington as this will assist in getting the Parish Council to do something, I hope!

The fall of Parlington looks set to descend to new depths if the proposed development takes place. That is to provide up to 5,000 new houses over the next decade or so. If you are alarmed and would like to register a protest about this follow the posts on Facebook
