Abbots Leigh Heritage Group

Starts: 16 November 2017 19:00
Ends: 16 November 2017 21:00

Location: Holy Trinity Church

Members of the group appreciate that we have been able to hold recent meetings in the building about which we are talking, and in November the meeting will be in our own church – Holy Trinity. There will be many in our village who do not know the history of the church or the churchyard, and even those who are regular churchgoers may find out something new.

The evening will cover the history of the church from its origins as a Saxon hermitage to the first 12th century records and through the centuries to the fire of 1848 (see the article from the London Illustrated News February 1848). Inside the church are numerous monuments, tablets and plaques all with a little of their own history.

We will gather from 19.00 for a glass of wine and the meeting itself will start at 19.30.

All welcome as usual to share their knowledge and stories about the church and its history.
