Hoby Village Trail

tail fronthpby-village-trail

A Hoby Village Trail is available remembering all from the village who went off to war during 1914-1918 and those who did not return. The map shows the houses at that time and who lived where. The poppies honour those that did not return. Copies are available in All Saints Church.

Hoby is a beautiful Wreake Valley village that still retains much of its old and interesting architecture. The Hoby & District Local History Society offers a guided walk around Hoby lasting about
1 ½ to 2 ½ hours. The trail covers architecture and social history and is illustrated with photographs from the early part of the last century.

The price is £3.00 per head; tea & cake can be provided afterwards for afternoon walks at a cost of £5.00 per head to include walk & refreshments. (Alternatively, you could always end up at the Blue Bell Inn for a drink and/or meal.)
