Welcome to Helpston!
The Botolph's Barn website provides information about the village of Helpston and its community. On this site you can find details of forthcoming events and of local groups and businesses. You can also find a library of photos of the village past and present and information about the wildlife and countryside around the village. There are some suggested walks and of course plenty of links to information about John Clare - you can even listen to readings of his poems and sounds of the natural world.
How can we support our local shop?
In tough economic times we need to do everything we can to keep shopping local!
Based in the centre of Helpston, north-west Cambridgeshire, opposite St Botolph's Church and next door to the Exeter Arms, Botolph's Barn itself provides meeting rooms for the village church and the local community. It also hosts a small exhibition, looking at the history of the village, its connection to Helpston born poet, John Clare and the surrounding natural environment.
The Barn provides broadband access to the internet for members of the local community and can be booked as a venue for corporate meetings and events.
This website provides more information about the Barn, the exhibition and how to book the meeting rooms.
The website is sponsored and administered by Athene Communications.
