Welcome to our village website where you can find details of upcoming events, local news, parish council papers and information on Parham's interesting history.  

 

Parham Airfield Museum- free admission

Parham has one of the few remaining 2nd world war Air Museums in the Country that has connection with the USA. This is a special tourist attraction open on Sundays and Wednesdays, housing an exhibition of wartime artefacts in the redundant Control Tower. It commemorates the 390th Bomber Group of the American 8th Air Force. Also in the museum is a room devoted to the Parham section of the British Resistance Organisation.

The old air base also supports light industrial units providing employment. About 11% of Parham's electoral roll in 2003 were either self-employed or had employment in the village.  

Circular Walk (copies can be found in the Church) directs walkers on a picturesque walk along public rights of way passing a number of notable listed buildings. The result of various environmental projects can be seen along the route such as the excavation of Jubilee Pond & Twin Ponds on North Green and the new cutting regime of Parham's Greens to increase bio-diversity, which are part of Parham's Bio-diversity Action Plan.
