10 Wimborne – A Miscellany: Talk by Malcolm Angel

Malcolm Angel has written a new book about Wimborne Minster which provides glimpses of a most surprising history. It is a town rightly described as a jewel in Dorset’s crown, and likened to a near perfect cathedral city in miniature. A complex, bustling market town, built around its fine minster church – a place of
kings, queens, saints and miracles...

12 From Altar to Archive: The Life of Rev. Canon C.H Mayo Talk by Luke Mouland

REv Cn CH Mayo
The Rev. Canon C. H. Mayo (1845-1929) although born in Salisbury, attended Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School in Wimborne and went on to become one of the most prolific writers on Dorset’s history. He founded Somerset and Dorset Notes and Queries (SDNQ) and published many guide books, papers and church histories. With the aid of his correspondence and private research papers, this talk will examine the extent of Canon Mayo’s contribution to Dorset’s written heritage. Remarkably his work can still be found in most local libraries and archives today.

13 Coach Visit to Somerset Friends Only Event

Join us for a pre-Christmas treat at Cothelstone Manor followed by a visit to Coates English Willow.
Cothelstone Manor dates from the early 1600s, with many fine architectural features. It is the home of Nigel and Finny Muers-Raby who will give a personal
tour of the beautiful house, gatehouse, gazebo and grounds, plus a visit to the nearby church. Back at the Manor, a light lunch will then be served, finished
off with carols around the Christmas tree.
Just a few miles away, is the heart of the English willow industry which has carried on, virtually unchanged, for 200 years. At Coates English Willow, still a family run
business, there will be a tour, a chance to see basket weaving in action, plus a museum illustrating the history of this most specialised of industries.
