Ambridge is a place many of us know almost as well as our own home towns. But while millions of people are invested in the goings-on in this picturesque village, few have had the privilege of walking its winding lanes. Now you can. Join Lynda Snell, a true pillar of this rural community, as she takes you on a guided tour of radio’s most well-loved village.
Starting at the summit of Lakey Hill, with its sweeping views of rural Borsetshire, Lynda will lead you around the village’s landmarks and institutions imparting wisdom and gossip as she goes. Sun yourself in the beer garden of the Bull, watch the world go by from a bench on the village green and don your wellies for a wander around Brookfield. There are weddings to attend at St Stephen’s, productions to enjoy at the Village Hall and deals to be done at the Dower House.
Each chapter centres on key locations to challenge your knowledge in all manner of Ambridge affairs. Whether you’re a lifelong listener of The Archers, have an ear for gossip, or are a relative newbie, you will be able to put your area of expertise to the test. With 70 years of rich rural history to explore, you might even learn something new.
