History Group visit Blists Hill Museum

16th May,2018 The History Group’s visit to Blists Hill Museum turned out to be an amazing day. Lots of us bought an enormous packet of fish and chips for our dinner cooked in proper dripping; I think we had forgotten what it tasted like but we hadn’t forgotten shops as they used to be when we went with our mums and grandmas. When banks, chemists, drapers, grocers, etc. used stirling (real money); made their own pills and medicines, packed sugar, sliced bacon, cut butter, and measured us for clothes. Just a few of us made it to the iron bridge before the workmen closed it for the day which was upsetting after articles in the English Heritage magazine and checks by telephone both of which said it would be open for us to view the ironwork.

20th June, 2018 A tour of Nottingham Caves from the Broadmarsh Centre. Would members who would like to come on this visit pay for the tour on June 13th. Meet at the bottom of Broadmarsh steps or escalator at 1.45 pm. Please note that sensible shoes should be worn due to uneven ground.

After this visit the group will have the usual summer break, meeting again for the new season at Central Methodist Church on Wednesday 19th September, 2018, at 2.00 pm for a talk about Nottingham Cheese Riots.
