Beachamwell
A pretty village, which could soon be spoilt by the insidious "executive style" housing being built on what should be farm land around the green. The village proper runs along two sides of the large green, with the unique thatched Norman church of St. Mary's at one end and a popular pub, the 'Great Dane Country Inn' at the other. The church has stood on this spot for a thousand years and is attractive inside and out. The village once boasted three churches, the remains of St.John's can be seen in a field near St. John's farm and the other, All Saints' in a meadow about a quarter of a mile south of the village. The pub,now renamed 'The Great Dane Country Inn' overlooks the green, serving excellent meals, along with some nice local 'real' ales. There is also a very tiny Post Office/Stores close by the church.
