My daughter is very fortunate to live in this beautiful Village and can see this wonderful Historical Maypole from her home. We attend any Dancing or festival involved with it, i.e. May Day, Village Wake...always a joy to watch.

Offenham village is distinctive with its 64 ft maypole, "the tallest of only six permanent maypoles remaining in England".
