September meeting – Redgrave Park – Tim Holt-Wilson
For the first of our autumn meetings we welcome as our guest speaker Tim Holt-Wilson. Tim was one of the original members of our group and led our very enjoyable summer explorations of the river Waveney and Breckland from east to west.
For those who haven’r met him, Tim is a polymathic investigator of natural and cultural phenomena. He has a degree in Classical Studies and a background in museums work and education. He currently works freelance in the field of environment and heritage information. He has specialist interests in geoconservation, Quaternary geology and Thomas Paine.
For his talk this month, Tim will be taking a gallop through a thousand years of history at Redgrave Park, showing its transformation from monastic hunting ground to classical landscape designed by Capability Brown, telling the story of its successive owners and supplying glimpses into what life was like at Redgrave Hall.
We’ll be meeting on Saturday, September 14th at 2.00pm at Needham Village Hall, High Road, Needham, IP20 9LB. All are welcome, members £2.00, non-members £3.00. The usual refreshments will be available.
