13th September, 2017. Recent highlights.

Gave my talk on the River Hull last Wednesday 10 – 11 am at Hull History Centre as part of an extended programme arranged by Hull Civic Soc. for the national Heritage Weekend and to compliment Hull’s City of Culture status this year. More attenders than I had expected.

For Barton’s contribution to the national Heritage Weekend Ian Wolseley organised a very extensive programme of events in collaboration with Heritage Lincolnshire and I did the guiding at Tyrwhitt Hall on Sunday pm as my contribution.

Forthcoming events – Friday 15th at Joseph Wright Hall in Barton a presentation by Dr. David Neave on Lincolnshire landed gentry families, co-supported by the Society for Lincolnshire History and Archaeology as their Rex Russell memorial lecture.

On Saturday 16th some members of the British Brick Society are visiting Barton.

On Tuesday 19th a guided walk in the afternoon round Wansford village, near Driffield and beside the upper River Hull and the Driffield Canal (see above image of the five-arch bridge the river at Wansford).
