Thu Apr 18th 201910:30General Meeting. HenHam Village woods. Henham Parish Council have bought woodland 1 mile outside of Henham which they would like us to survey, as well as the 7 ponds scattered throughout the village. Park in the High Street TL549285 at 1030am and survey the village before heading out to the woods in as few cars as possible as, there is not enough suitable parking places by the wood. The woodland strip is located at TL544274. As you come out of Henham on Mill Road the wood is on the right hand side opposite a haulage yard known as Hill Top Farm. There is a very straight public footpath which leads to Elsenham,it appears to be part of a disused railway line. This could form a circular walk for those who like a ramble (approx. 2.5 miles). Bring a packed lunch. There is a village shop which is open 9am-1pm and 2-430pm. The Cock Inn pub is open 12-3pm and 5-11pm.Email to confirm in advance
