Yaxley Festival Legacy Projects: Phase 1
In an exciting week for those interested in local history and specifically the heritage of Yaxley, it has been announced that the newly formed Fenland Trust, a group created as a direct result of the Yaxley Festival Legacy Heritage Project, will be staging the village’s first ever Heritage Week this November.
The Yaxley Festival isn’t just about community and entertainment – it’s also about heritage, specifically celebrating the rich local history of Yaxley and the Great Fen.
