300 year old village - Stop 8 along the Lung Yeuk Heritage Trail
Mar 2021
Wing Ning Tsuen is stop 8 along the Lung Yeuk Heritage Trail in Fanling. It is located very near to Wing Ning Wai (stop 9), its older sister village in centuries past. What you will see here today is part of the wall and the entrance to the old village.

Historically, Wing Ning Tsuen has a history of over 300 years. Houses were laid out in three separate rows, similar to other Tang Clan walled villages in the area. However, these have been mostly demolished and replaced with modern buildings now, thus making only the entrance and the small shrine called Fuk Tak Tsz near the village entrance points of interest for visitors today.

Note: There is no information panel posted outside of the Wing Ning Tsuen entrance stop. However, you will find a historical account of this heritage attraction at the Tang Chung Ling Ancestral Hall (stop 6). In the Rear Hall there are panels setup with the history of each of the Lung Yeuk Tau Heritage Trail attractions including Wing Ning Tsuen.

Note: Wing Ning Tsuen is not open to the public to wander within and explore. Just have a brief look at the entrance, remaining wall sections and the small shrine outside the entrance. Then carry on with other stops along the Lung Yeuk Heritage Trail.

One of the attractions to see as part of the Lung Yeuk Tau Heritage Trail
Aug 2016 • Solo
Wing Ning Tsuen is one of the walled villages in Fanling that make up part of the Lung Yeuk Tau Heritage Trail.

This village was built around 1700 but there is not much to see from a historical perspective now. Many of the traditional houses have been recently redeveloped with newer homes. However, there is a fair portion of the old wall which remains intact and there is a nice entrance with Chinese character signage that is worth finding and having a look.

It is also worth finding the Wing Ning Wai entrance nearby. This entrance was built in 1744 with red sandstone bricks. Its state is dilapidated but makes for a nice view and comparison to the main village entrance not far away.

Note: Follow the signage when making your way to Wing Ning Tsuen. It is a bit tricky to find. In this regard, best to have a printed map of the Lung Yeuk Tau Heritage Trail with you as you search for this and other inclusions of the trail.

Note: You can visit the Antiquities and Monuments Leisure Office & Cultural Services Department website 'Heritage Trails page to find more information about the Lung Yeuk Tau Heritage Trail, the various attractions you can see and downloadable maps.
