Hoskins Day will be held on the 23rd of June at 2:30 pm. The speaker will be Dr Stuart Wrathmell, perhaps best known to former students for his formidable 'Atlas of Rural Settlement in England', (with B.K. Roberts) but who has also done much distinguished work on early settlements, and his presentation to us of 'Wharram Percy and its Landscape Contexts' promises a fascinating update on that intriguing site. The lecture is a public one, and the Friends encourage anyone who is interested in the topic to attend. A small charge of £3 is made on the door for those who are not members of the Friends, but in return for this you have a warm welcome to the lecure and to tea afterwards in Marc Fitch House, No 5 Salisbury Road, where there will also be a book sale.


An Autumn Day Visit is planned for 15 September 2019 to visit Buckminster, hosted by Pam Fisher who will explain the features of this estate village. More details shortly.
