THE PARISH OF WADENHOE

 

Wadenhoe's population of about 100 includes a good mix of young and old, though there is a preponderance of retired people. Many of the houses are owner-occupied, though quite a few are rented from the Wadenhoe Trust, the village's principal land-owner. The Trust manages five home farm business units, and also Wadenhoe House, a management training and conference centre which is licensed for civil marriage ceremonies. There are no shops or post office, but there is a public house ("The King's Head") which serves good food.

 

The parish church, dedicated to St Michael and All Angels, dates from the thirteenth century, and stands on an imposing site from where there are attractive views down to the River Nene. There are two services each month: Wadenhoe is a popular venue for weddings, but the usual Church of England guidelines need to be observed by those considering a church wedding there.
