The group meets Monthly on the 4th Tuesday from 17.00
A series of short guided walks looking at the history of some towns, villages and places nearby. Walks will
be about 2 miles in length. Afterwards there will be an option to join us for a meal in a local pub.
24 April: Alrewas. An attractive village in the Trent Valley which still retains several early timber framed buildings, a fine church, which we will visit, and the Trent and Mersey Canal
22 May: Baswich and St Thomas Priory. Starting at Baswich Church and driving to St Thomas Priory Farm looking at the remains of the medieval monastery and the buildings which replaced it.
26 June: Forton and Meretown. A small estate village with an attractive manor house and church, which we will visit, a disused canal and some interesting bridges.
24 July: Tutbury. Starting at the Dog and Partridge, including the church, the mill, the historic town and viewing the castle from the exterior.
28 August: Stone. Once the site of an Augustinian Priory and later a market town situated on the main London to Chester road. The building of the canal and the railway, and the development of the brewing and shoemaking industries later influenced the growth of the town.
25 September: Seighford and Cooksland. Starting at the Holybush Inn, a visit to an interesting church and to a variety of timber-framed buildings.
