A new resident reports on what he found

As I have now been a resident for over a year, 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 of banks, supermarkets, charity shops, a vet, police beat office, free car park, two opticians, several cafes, two pubs, builders merchant, two doctors surgeries etc. I’d better stop there and return to Wanlip!

So what does Wanlip have?

I knew you would ask that!

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

Now you know. I’ve been out and taken a few photos and they will get posted on the following pages starting here over the next few weeks along with other updates.

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.

NEW - How about a bit about our nearest ‘village’ aka Birstall? All starts here!
