Welcome to Wray
This is a site showing life in a beautiful rural location, in the Lune Valley, just north of Lancaster, Lancashire, England. (map link on left)
If you are looking for the scarecrow page, the link is on the left!
Wray is full of lively local characters and groups, - and hosts many local events, such as the scarecrow festival and maggot races. Wray is also the first wireless hotspot village in Lancashire and lit the first rural fibre to the home in the UK in 2009. The whole village now has access to hyperfast fibre broadband at 1000 Mbps, that is a Gigabit and it's symmetrical, which means the upload is as fast as the download!
