CB300 Events in Church


Someone stopped me last year, outside our local shop, and said that if I were to cycle from where Capability Brown was born to where he is buried then he would sponsor me!

This set the challenge of actually doing just that in this Tercentenary year, a distance of 295 miles (more if you include cycling to the start between railway stations/B&B’s!)

So, on Monday 22nd August 2016, five of us are heading north, by train, to Northumberland. The following day, we will be setting off from his birthplace, Kirkharle, and over the next five days we’ll be heading to where his remains lie, in the churchyard here in Fenstanton.

We are doing this, not only to celebrate CB300, but as a sponsored ride to raise much needed money to restore the Brown Family Memorial in our Parish Church.

We are hoping against hope for NO rain, NO punctures and that, if there has to be wind, it is BEHIND us!

It would be great if you could sponsor us please, as seeing a growing amount of money raised will certainly spur us on and make it all worthwhile.  You can donate via:

or complete a gift aid envelope here in church, writing on the front that it is for the sponsored ride, and pop it in the safe box at back of church beside the door.

We are Sue Martynski, Keith Page, John Jackson, David Martynski and Julia Mitchell.

There are many events going on, both in our village and nationally, but this event will directly link the birth and final resting places of Lancelot “Capability” Brown.

Thank you Julia Mitchell
