Local History – October

We had a most enjoyable visit to Deene, the home of the Brudenell family for over 500 years.  It was the seat of the Earls of Cardigan, of whom the most notable was the 7th Earl who led the Charge of the Light Brigade at Balaklava.  Our guides were very informative and certainly brought history alive.

On Tuesday 16 October at 2.00 pm, we will welcome Vicky Score, who will outline and bring us up to date with the excavations at Marston Trussell and Lubenham.  We look forward to seeing you all then.

Tea/coffee and biscuits will be available after the meeting – our thanks to Kevin and Irene for their help.
