The Parish Council is delighted that the new interpretation panel has been put in place at Duckers Well and this important piece of Tarvin history has been made accessible to all.

Duckers Well Sign

While it may not have the grandeur or glamour of a Beeston Castle, Duckers Well tells the story of how our ancestors lived their lives and thus adds to the richness of our heritage. The Parish Council asked that their appreciation for the hard work put in by Councillor Roger Hones and former Councillor Pete Maiden, together with others, be formally recognised.

Ed: "Well done not only the Parish Council but also Tarvin Civic Trust and Tarvin Local History Group for the panel (Official Opening to follow...)"




A little further down the road, Church Street will see work soon that will improve the flow of surface water and prevent the build-up of large puddles during heavy rain. A plan to upgrade the footpath gulleys, change some of the manhole covers and gradients and some resurfacing and patching should improve the situation considerably.


The scheme has been priced, approved and passed to a contractor for programming, so hopefully work will commence in the very near future.

However, not daunted, it will be open again next Thursday from 2 until 4 and there will be a possibility of cake to tempt you.You do not have to come to the Library to...
