This photo above shows in the background the glorious Ancient flint Tower at Holy Trinity Church, Hildersham, while in the foreground is the beautiful flint new North Porch dating from this Autumn 2015.
Looking at images like this - it makes all the hard work fundraising for a disabled toilet and kitchen facilities worth while
The craftsmen involved in this 'Its Our Turn Now' building project have all performed magnificently to create this masterpiece
I wonder what a visiting Church Historian might say when visiting in 2215

On Saturday 17th October I attended the Modern Day Slavery Summit at SCDC Offices at Cambourne, represent both Hildersham and Balsham residents, what follows is an entry that will be in various local newsletters and magazines. What came out of the summit, made it very clear that this is happening on our streets here in South Cambridgeshire, one area that surprised me was it was very prevalent in every day things like the new hand car washes that have sprung up everywhere.

The left hand corner of the tower at Holy Trinity Church, Hildersham shows a great example how 'Erratics' were used to help with all sorts of building work.
These erratics have held the tower up for over 900 years. Erratic is the name for stones often huge in size that have been dragged along at the bottom of a Glacier and may have travelled many hundreds of miles.
We know that Hildersham and the Granta valley we sit in is the southern most tip of the 'East Anglian' Ice Age. Hildersham Wood is the far edge, as well as being the county boundary between Cambridgeshire and Essex, the other side of the valley is a low range of hills stretching from the Gog Magog hills and is a string or esker ridge of glacial gravel topped hills. These contain the scree or rubbish behind the head of the glacier.
At Hildersham the main hill, 'Furze Hill' was used as a quarry with the sand and gravel extracted to help build the new towns such as Welyn Garden City.
These 'Hildersham Erratics' are very special and their use in holding up the Hildersham Tower is one of the best examples in England of their use.
At Hildersham, we fully appreciate that you may not have fully embraced the wonderful world of Social Media, so we are giving you a helping hand by providing you with the live Twitter Feeds from the Church of England , Ely Diocese and the Church Times on our Ely Diocese web-page, this allows you to view these live feeds without the need of having a Twitter Account of your own.
