Sheung Cheung Wai
 
Sheung Cheung Wai
 

Sheung Cheung Wai, situated west of Hang Tau Tsuen, was built about 200 years ago by a line of the Tang Clan that branched out from Hang Tau Tsuen. It is the only walled village along the Ping Shan Heritage Trail.

Sheung Cheung Wai is a typical local walled village. The symmetrical layout of the village features rows of houses enclosed by a green-brick wall, with the gatehouse and shrine lying on the central axis. The wall of the village was once surrounded by a moat with the only entrance situated in the middle of the southern wall. Although the moat has been filled in, and the gatehouse and the shrine have been re-constructed, part of the enclosing walls and old houses inside still remain to provide a general impression of the original setting, layout and characteristics of a traditional Chinese walled village.

This is private property and is not open to the public.
