Laxton village is the site of the last remaining open field farming crop rotation system still managed by a legally constituted Court Leet and Jury. Over the weekend of 28th and 29th June Laxton History Group invites you to come to learn more about this unique place and also to help us to discover more about the village as it was between 1900 and 1920.

The event hub opens at 10.30am both days and will be hosting a wide range of activities based at Crosshill Farm. Learn more of the village’s history from the Group’s display and the range of speakers. Collect a guide for the village twitchell walk or the fishpond walk to the hub, then help your children ‘Spot the Sheep or Fish’ or enjoy a Trailer ride.

You will be able to buy refreshments throughout and entertainment from Rattlejag Morris (Saturday) and the Bowmen of War both days, as well as a wide range of heritage crafts being demonstrated by local artists and crafts people. Don’t forget your shopping bag as there will be plenty of chances to buy gifts and treats from those demonstrating their skills.
