The friends of St John the Baptist Church, Flitton have organised an illustrated talk to be given by Dr Nick Ashton who is the curator at the British Museum Department of Pre History of Europe.

Dr Ashton’s talk will describe the Happisburgh footprints found in 2013 on the foreshore and date to the early Pleistocene around 800,000 years ago.  This will be a fascinating talk. The meeting is in aid of the St John the Baptist Church.

Flitton and Greenfield

Greenfield is a small village about 1.2 miles from the town of Flitwick, it lies across Flitwick Moor and is on the opposite side of the River Flit. It forms part of the parish of Flitton and Greenfield. The area was once well known as a strawberry producing area, and the fields were full of strawberry plants on either side of the main road. It is now a thriving village with several small businesses.

Flitton  (Flichtam, Fllite, and Flute) forms the other part of the parish and derives its name from river Flit. It is the home of the De Grey Mausoleum adjacent to St John the Baptist church. Flitton contains the hamlet of Wardhedges. It too has a number of small businesses and working farms.
