Date For Your Diary – Dry Drayton Parish Boundary Walk 2023

Based on the ancient custom of Beating the Bounds we plan to walk the Parish Boundaries on Saturday 24th June. In England the tradition is centuries old, dating from at least Anglo-Saxon times.

This will be the 5th Boundary Walk since we revived the tradition and this year we will go around the parish in an anticlockwise direction. The full walk is approximately 10 miles and there will be several rest stops and a place for a picnic lunch. There are also a few easy exit points for those that wish to take a shorter route home.

More than half of the Parish Boundary falls on private land and we have permission from the relevant land owners that will allow us to follow the boundary as closely as possible. We will travel along paths and through woods normally closed to the public. We wish to thank Messrs Chivers, Jenkins and Peck for kindly granting this once in a year access to their private land.

Anyone who would like more information or to register their wish to participate should send an email to: or text 07709 584207.

Village Coffee Morning

The next coffee morning will be at the village Hall 10- 12 on Wednesday 1st March, followed by the Easter Coffee Morning on 5th April. During the April Coffee Morning there will be a few stalls selling local produce and homemade craft items to raise money for Riding for the Disabled and Dry Drayton Village Hall. If you have any produce/ craft items etc which you could donate, please bring them along on the morning.

Thank you to everyone who comes to the Coffee Mornings and supports us in any way. We are always looking for more volunteers to help, particularly to bake for us! (We promise not to harass you for more cakes, we are just grateful whenever people can help out!) If you would like to give time/ cake please contact Una on or Gil on
