Community Archives Month event with Dringhouses Local History Group
23rd May 2017 @ 9:30 am - 5:30 pmFree
Join the Dringhouses Local History Group all day, and look at the best of their archives, as part of Community Archives Month.
Learn more about the local area, from Colonel Wilkinson to the ‘Knares Mire’. Colonel George Alexander Eason Wilkinson, last Lord of the Manor of Dringhouses, was born 25 Feb 1860 and inherited the Manor of Dringhouses in 1881. Fought in South African War and WW1, with distinction. On his death in 1941, he gave Dringhouses Library to the Council and people of Dringhouses in a Deed of Gift.
Bring your local history queries and perhaps buy a copy of the fascinating ‘Discovering Dringhouses 2: More Aspects of a Local History’ or the 1624 Samuel Parson’s map of Dringhouses.
All day session, just drop in.
