East Hendred knitting trail

East Hendred is a great village to wander around at any time but one lady’s craft obsession has made it even better at the moment!

The village has been decorated with more than 70 figures, animals and objects and new ones are still being added.

There is currently no map or list so you’ll need to hunt them out yourselves. I’d suggest starting near the shop (useful for ice creams afterwards) as there are quite a few in this local area.

If you’re struggling, then check around the pubs, church, playground (although it is closed) and museum area. There are also some in gardens, attached to houses and on fences (particularly in White Road) so keep your eyes peeled. Some are well hidden, I’m sure we missed loads.

It’s hard to choose a favourite but the moles near the Eyston Arms are great. They’ve even dug themselves a few holes!

Other favourites included the knitted gargoyle at the church and Elvis, who graces a fence near the shop.

It’s a fun trail to discover with children but it’s not just for youngsters. I certainly don’t fall into that category!

  1. Amazing, really enjoyed spotting them especially the naughty nudists. Are they all still there, we have a friend coming to visit and would love to take her to see?

    1. Hi Linda
      I think they’re still there – last post I saw was that a list was being drawn up which you could get from the village shop.
