Kirton in Lindsey Society

by | 20 October 2021 | Gainsborough, Group meeting, Heritage

The Kirton in Lindsey Society season of talks continues Tuesday 28th September. The talk this time will be about ‘The Fossdyke Navigation 1670 to 1845’. Rob Wheeler, a new speaker for the society, will be looking at the struggles to keep this important waterway, from Lincoln to the River Trent at Torksey, both navigable and watertight!
The November meeting will be the curiously titled ‘Feathers, Filters and Cigars’. Neil Wright, author, and local historian, will be looking at some of the more unusual industries in Lincolnshire.
All meetings commence at 7.30pm in the Diamond Jubilee Town Hall, High Street, Kirton in Lindsey DN21 4LZ. The entrance fee is normally 50p, including refreshments for members, and £2.00 for non-members except for special meetings.
Their new publication in the local studies series, is now available. ‘Monarchs, Maltings and Mythical Animals’ is about the history of public houses and brewing in Kirton. It is available direct from the society – call Martin Hollingsworth on 01652 648435 or see www.kirtoninlindseysociety.org.uk.
