Wednesday 12th September, Barrow Road Cemetery, Barton, 6-15pm, Guided tour.
Saturday 15th September, Baysgarth Park, Barton 11am and again at 2pm (meet beside Baysgarth House). Between these two times am giving a short talk at the Ropewalk, Barton at 12-15 re my book on 19th century housing using Barton as the case study.
Sunday 16th September, Tyrwhitt Hall, Barton, second guided viewing of the Great Hall.
Both Hull and Barton Civic Societies have produced a fine booklet listing all events at each location with lots of pictures and background information, Hull’s is called Heritage Open Days 2018 (A4 size), Barton’s is called ‘Picturing the Past’ (A5+ size).
