Cupola_MIDOn Wednesday 18 June, local charity Cambridge Past, Present & Future (CambridgePPF) will be staging a special event that will reveal fascinating facts about the history of Wandlebury Country Park – one of Cambridge’s most beloved green spaces.

Members of the public are being encouraged to join CambridgePPF’s properties team for a guided walk around the park, which stretches over 110 acres and offers more than 8km of meandering footpaths.

The early evening stroll will take in the central areas of the Wandlebury estate looking for evidence of the past. During the walk the team will recount stories about the people who lived and worked at Wandlebury from the 18th century onwards.

Wandlebury Country Park is a magical place to explore. Many people know it as the perfect spot for a picnic and a wander or because of its Iron Age hill fort, which dates back 2,500 years. But did you know that modern thoroughbred racehorses have a connection to Wandlebury? Find out more about this and discover additional local history facts at this event, which runs from 7pm to 8pm and is suitable for adults and older children.

Booking is essential so the charity can gauge the number of attendees and staff the event accordingly. The price per person is £4. Members of CambridgePPF only have to pay £3. Ticket revenue will be used by the charity to fund its work at Wandlebury and at its other sites in and around the city. For more information: bookings@cambridgeppf.org or call 01223 243830 extension 201

Wandlebury Country Park is on the A1307, 2.5km south of the Addenbrooke’s roundabout. Parking is available on site and costs £3 per car. Parking is free at Wandlebury all year round for members of the charity.
