A community with a history
There has been a settlement in Wadenhoe for at least 800 years and it is mentioned in the Domesday Book (www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=66276). The mainly 13th century church (The Church of St. Michael and All Angels) (www.oundledeanery.org.uk/parishes/wadenhoe) is located in a prominent position on a hill overlooking the meadowlands of the Nene valley and isolated from the main part of the village which lies below along the River Nene. In between the church and the village is an early medieval settlement site, now a scheduled Ancient Monument and a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest). There are many important vistas and open spaces with scenic and panoramic views from the village over the meadowlands towards Achurch, eastwards to Lilford Hall and from the river up to the village.
