Welcome to the Titchmarsh Village Website

The village, known in Anglo Saxon times as Ticceanmersce (Ticca's Marsh), has links to many national historical events including the Civil War and the Gunpowder Plot.

The first poet laureate John Dryden spent his childhood here. The modern day village is a thriving community which boasts a mediaeval church, the site of a mediaeval fortified manor house, a village school, community shop, clubroom, public house, and playing fields with a pavilion. Many of the houses are built of local limestone, several of which are thatched and a number listed.

At this time of year it provides one of the best walks in the area. The path around the central lake is about 3 miles long - half the distance of the forthcoming 10k. Indeed, if you're thinking of taking part in this year's event, twice around the lake is a lot more fun and no less taxing than running on the road! I've been down there a couple of times this week accompanied by my pooch, Bingle. I'm trying to get us both fit for an impending trip to the Lake District. Thankfully the terrain is very easy-going - like a walk in the park - and a quick lap around the water takes no more than 50 minutes. [...]
