Our Jericho

Our Jericho is a slice of life in Jericho in 2019. It was inspired by the 1974 TV programme Open Door Jericho

Forty-five years on, Our Jericho also stars many current local residents and canal boat dwellers, along with its magnificent church, its school, community activities, businesses, pubs, artists and singers.
