Another peaceful walk along quiet country lanes, through fields and two villages,
South and North Pickenham. The walk takes in Houghton on the Hill, where a medieval village once stood over looking the River Wissey. St. Mary’s Church, Houghton on the Hill, has become famous after a remarkable series of 11th Century wall paintings were discovered during restoration work in 1996. These are an unparalleled survival of their kind in Britain and are of international importance.
