Here are gathered pictures of Riseley drawn, with permission, from the two excellent books “Riseley – Our Village” and “Riseley – Our Village in Pictures” produced by the Riseley Historical Society.
The pictures are presented as a walk down and around the High Street.
Looking across to Keysoe Hill from beside the church there is the site of the old windmill. The photo below was taken around the turn of the century, harvest time. The windmill ceased working in 1916.
There is a footpath down from the church, across the field, to the High Street.
If you head downhill and across the bridge over the brook you come to a path besides 89 High Street. When you reach the High Street Mulberry and Cobblers Cottages are opposite.
Up Keysoe Road the Baptist Chapel used to stand on the right. You can see, beyond the green, there are some gravestones that were part of the chapel grounds.
Turning around again, facing the shop, the walk around Riseley now divides. You can turn up or down the High Street.
Turn left down the High Street towards the Fox and Hounds pub, heading South-West or right up the High Street towards the school, heading North-East.
