History Group

Beautiful weather had been requested again for the second visit of the year to Bakewell. Members had chance to look round the historic town and see the fish in the river Wye. Both Bakewell Museum and Church were so good, perhaps deserving another visit.

The visit to Grimsthorpe Castle on June 19th leaves Hucknall Market at 9 am – returning 6 pm(ish) On arrival refreshments will be served followed by a tour of the building. Lunch is either your own picnic or in the tearooms/café. At 3 pm we board the coach again for a tour of the grounds which is followed by a quick comfort break; then back to Hucknall.

The first indoor meeting of the next season in September is at Central Methodist Church at 2 pm. Andy Mckinnon will be telling us about The Great War with a focus on Hucknall.

At this meeting names and payment will be taken for a visit to The Royal Armouries in Leeds where we will have a guided tour of the Tournament Gallery and a handling session. The coach will leave Hucknall at 10 am – returning 6.30 pm(ish) Total cost is £15 per person.
