Great Wilbraham has been called home by villagers for thousands of years, dating back to the bronze age. Later the woodland was rumoured to have been a Roman settlement. Now a quintessential English village with a thriving community of around 600 people.
Any nature lovers may be interested to know that the Great Wilbraham common is one of the largest areas of species-rich grassland in the county. Locally uncommon flora include purple milk-vetch, felwort, meadow saxifrage, green-winged orchid and sulphur clover.
A great way to explore our area is on foot, with your four-legged friend in tow. In addition to our Wellington Boot Wander, is the Fleam Dyke, the remains of an Anglo-Saxon earthworks that formed part of the East Anglia defences in the fifth century.
