19th March 

 

(Postponed from the AGM, November 2019).

The ITHAS Project.

(The Itinerary Triangle History and Archaeological Society)

A talk by Mark Bletchley

ITHAS: ‘A society which looks to form an amalgamation of local historians and archaeological groups, committed to sharing knowledge with the objective though research and survey, to define the ancient societies and region created by natural geology, ancient roads and trackways’.

This recently formed group is looking into the history contained in our local area within the triangle bordered by the Roman Fosse Way, Akeman Street and Watling Street. This should be a talk of interest to many in this area.

 

Friday 3rd April. Extra Evening.

In June 2019 Chris Hone gave a talk about the ironstone railway at Wroxton, followed by a guided walk along the old track-bed.  At the time he said that he had some old film but no way of projecting it. Chris has now located a means of showing the film and an extra evening, Friday 3rd April, has been arranged at the Village Hall, 7.30.

To support the railway theme, Andrew will also bring us up to date with his work on the EHLR.
