Tony Consadine will give this talk about the ancient habit of family identification through heraldic motifs. He will focus on local heraldry.


And with heraldry in mind,  don’t forget our………..





Those who came to the talk about the Castle were fascinated by the building and its long and turbulent history and now we will have an opportunity to see it for ourselves.

Our tour will begin at 11.00am and we will meet in the Castle café at 10.00am, so there will be an opportunity for coffee and a chat before we start the tour.

We will be keeping the cost down by travelling by cars rather than a coach.              (Can you offer a lift? Do you need a lift?)

The cost of the tour is £6.50 per person.
