Wimbotsham walk FRW

Prison and Gallows During the reign of Edward I, the Abbot of Ely had a prison and gallows at Wimbotsham. The site is unknown but they are locally reputed to have been near St Mary's Church.

A few years ago, a number of farthings were discovered by builders working on the porch of St Mary's Church. The coins were thought to have been left by local men leaving to fight in World War One and were reburied where they were found.

St Mary's Church is off the route but is accessible via Church Road. Church dates back to the 12th century. The churchyard here is a County Wildlife Site. The grass is rich in herb species such as rough chervil, bulbous buttercup and dove’s-foot cranesbill.
