I live not very far away, and have told people about the Square. They are always astounded when they visit. From the main roads you would not know such a place existed. It was built by a religious group and remains owned by the Moravian...More

This area is local to us and we wandered around one fine summer day. The buildings are beautiful and it is a place of historic interest. Good for a little local walk.

Walk down the cobbled streets at night under the former gas lamp Street lights and feel like you're on a Dickensian type film set. Visit the unique Moravian church and community centre during the weekend open days. Amazing history in this settlement.

Step back in time.The Moravian Settlement dates from 1785. It's a small community of flower laden homes and a Church.

Nice place for a little stroll ending up on the canal. Very cute road and nice buildings, not much to see not the biggest settlement but very nice, you feel like you are back in time.
