Corston Village History Walk

Corston Local History Society’s  Village History Walk, led by Martin Seymour took place on a very wet Sunday afternoon in January.

The twenty six hardy society members visited key locations around the village, including the possible site of Corston’s medieval mill, and ended with welcome hot drinks at the church.

We will be re-running the walk in the summer or those of you wishing to see the sun on your way round!
