13 Winchester Part 4 – Bishops, Buildings & Bones, 1850 to the present day
Talk by Andrew Negus

The final part of the Winchester series. Learn how the Victorians sort out St. Cross, build sewers and a new Guildhall. The Cathedral sinks, and a Cannon causes terrible riots! Winchester became home to 300,000 Tommies in the 1st WW, and its airfield was sunk in the 2nd. Then there are the Muckabites, Sherlock Holmes, Joan of Arc and Mrs Thatcher as they appear in the city.

14 Coach Trip to Chavenage House and Tetbury
Friends Only Event

Chavenage House
Join us for a visit to ‘Trenwith’ and walk in the footsteps of Ross Poldark!
Chavenage House in the heart of the Cotswolds has a long and interesting history - a manor house of classic Elizabethan style concealing its medieval origins, which has been used in several TV productions such as ‘Lark Rise to Candleford, Tess of the D’Ubervilles, Wolf Hall and many others. The beautiful town of Tetbury then awaits us, where you will have some free time for lunch and a chance to wander through its delightful old streets with elegant buildings and some unusual shops too.
Tickets: £28 per person Meet: Details on ticket
