Harbury Parish Council Seasonal Light Trail
At the end of what has been a difficult year for all of us, the Parish Council has decided to bring a bit of cheer by increasing the festive lighting in the village, and extending it to the end of March, as the Scandinavians do. 

On Saturday 5th December the lights were switched on, and, in order help people enjoy the spectacle, a walking trail has been created. The trail is in two sections so that people can enjoy two leisurely strolls, or take in all of the lights in the course of one more energetic walk.

The map below shows the location of both Parish Council and private lights. Red for Parish Council lights. Blue for private lights. Large dots
are where there are multiple Parish Council lights in one location. Apart from the Post Office and Banana Moon, the other big dots are trees.
