Mike PENNINGTONT has a photograph of the Village Hall in Church Avenue on Geo-graph, taken in March, 2013. Stop in and ask for a schedule of forth-coming events. This building was part of RAF Digby station until moved here, presumably after World War II.
In the churchyard is a stone cross with a canopy erected after World War I in memory of the 13 men of the parish who died during that war. Their names are carved on the base of the cross.
During World War II Ashby Hall was used by RAF Digby. Originally taken in 1940 by the Accounts Section. In 1942 609 squadron pilots took up residence. They were shortly replaced by Canadian RAF squadron 411.
