Great Wilbraham #FocusFriday

Updated: Oct 27, 2023

This small but pretty village is full of charming old houses and a strong and vibrant community spirit, and is situated about 7 miles east of Cambridge. At the centre is the village green, boarded by some of the older buildings in the area, including the church that dates back to the 12th century and was one given to the Knights Templar.

(There is a map of the area at the bottom of this page along with links to local services.)

The is plenty to throw yourself into with village life in Great Wilbraham with notable local events including the regular farmer's market and vegetable shows and community groups for health and wellbeing.

Are you a film fan but maybe a little averse to trekking into the city, finding parking, and then paying a small fortune for a sugary drink, some popcorn, and your ticket? The Great Wilbraham Film Club provides an antidote to all of that. 12 films over 12 months for £12 and free to under 18s. They started right before the first covid lockdown but were back up and running at the end of 2021. There is contact info' on the local website and the films are shown at the Memorial Hall, which is also where you can find all the local sports clubs or while away an afternoon watching the cricket!

If you've visited my #FocusFriday blog about a village before, you'll know that a pub or two will usually feature, and this time is no different except that this time, I think we have one of the most stylish pubs I've ever featured - The Carpenters Arms. Its dazzling modern design is both eye catching and comfortable and certainly makes it a memorable destination - plus it is dog friendly! The award winning owners also ensure that the food and drink menus more than match the quality of the interior design with an incredible range to choose from on their multiple menus. They have an excellent website and strong social media presence so I heartily recommend checking them out and paying a visit!

If you - or someone you know - is thinking of moving house and would like some assistance selling your current home, or finding your new one, use my contact page to get in touch.

You can also sign up to my Priority Buyers Club and get the latest properties before they go to market and my other latest news.
