The Chapmore End Sign

This was designed by Joy Norris and features (clockwise from top left)

  • horse riding
  • the granary at High Trees Farm
  • the seat around the chestnut tree (unfortunately the tree had to be cut down in September 2008 as it had become diseased and dangerous after a limb broke off)
  • Reg in his tractor
  • Thatched Cottage
  • The duck pond
  • The Woodman pub


On Sunday September 28th, the sign was finally unveiled. Reg cut the ribbon and Joy unveiled the plaque.



Red Telephone Box Saved

Bengeo Parish Council has agreed to sponsor the red telephone box so that while it will have no telephone, it will still remain a landmark of Chapmore End.

In July 2009 the phone box was treated to a bright new coat – doesn’t it look great!


Ducklings Rescued (2008)

A brood of about nine ducklings were seen on the pond recently. However, their numbers dwindled (we think herons had them) until there were only two left. On Sunday 16th    November, Margaret and Kevin were admiring them on the way to The Woodman only to find that the ducklings followed them to the pub! Linda decided to see if she could rear them until they were old enough to be returned to the pond. They are now growing rapidly in a cage in the bar.  Click HERE for photos



In February 2009 Chapmore End saw a lot more snow than normal.


Chapmore End seat

In 2009, a new tree to replace the diseased chestnut tree removed in 2008 was planted and a new circular seat was installed.
