Place Names investigates the origins of the village while the article entitled Black Ditches reflects on the political intrigue of the first Anglo Saxon settlers. Cavenham Crowns illustrate the magnificent Roman finds found near Cavenham Heath and the Icknield Way is touched upon under the Stone Bridge. The mural of St Walstan found in the village church of St Andrew is the only sign of the spread of the cult of St Walstan found outside the immediate vicinity of Bawburgh in Norfolk.
