A new resident reports on what he found



As I have now been a resident for over 4 years, I thought I’d better warn anyone thinking of finding our hamlet that you need to be prepared for the unexpected.


For example, the nearest village has a number (2) of banks, supermarkets, charity shops, a vet, police beat office, free car parks, two opticians, several cafes, two pubs, builders merchant, two doctors surgeries etc. I’d better stop there and return to Wanlip!

So what else does Wanlip have?

I knew you would ask that!

Best of all, a bit of peace and quiet (as does everywhere except the south-east). Indeed, I was chatting to one of our newer residents (as at end of July 2017) who loves it here, (now his home is sold again) the only problem is, they moved here from less than 5 miles from where I came from which really isn’t good enough.

If you have any suggestions, drop me a line.

The Wanlip village site can be found here where you will find old maps, village newsletters along with parish meeting agendas and minutes. One of the things you will learn is that Wanlip is considered ‘unsustainable’ but that’s down to the villagers to change if they want to.

Just in case you were wondering what happened to recorded temperatures for 2021 onwards, I have them on file but as no-one really cares, why publish them?
