Whamblab Extravaganza


50 km / 31 miles
The Whamblab Extravaganza takes its name from the initial letters of the eight Roding parishes: White, High, Aythorpe, Margaret, Beauchamp, Leaden, Abbess and Berners. Each one is visited as well as Matching Green, Great Canfield, Shellow Bowells, Radley Green and Willingale, noted for having two churches which share the same churchyard.

The Extravaganza was first developed in 2002 and updated in 2020.
