Interesting visitors to our village
Last Friday (11th March) we had a couple of unusual visitors to Bar Hill. I was pleased to see them and meet them as back in the late 60's, before I lived in Bar Hill, I used to ride with my girl friend from Dry Drayton across to Bar Hill, tie the horses outside Cambridge Consultants and partake of the free coffee

I have given some thought about this and it is becoming clear that the days of finding funds for a skate park equivelent to our previous one are over but, it just might be possible to build our own. I found this and will look further into it as soon as I can and in the meantime I would happily publish any helpful comments - just use the contact page.

    Bar Hill Early History update
    Last Friday, 22nd January 2016, We had a visit from Brian Falk one of the team that was instrumental in the original creation of Bar Hill.
    Brian has passed to us a number of interesting documents and photos from the early days and I will make them available as soon as I can. This may take a little time as I need to digitise a lot of slides.
    Brian has sent us a document that shows the growth of the village from the original 2,500 people to where we are today (4,500). Click here to view it.
    I have copied the first set of 10 original drawings that were used to support the original planning proposal. Click here to view them.
