Dates for your Diary
Thursday December 5th 11am-3pm – Book signing A dozen or so history enthusiasts have scoured the village of Holcombe over the last 3 years uncovering its history by chatting to villagers, sleuthing through archives, deciphering leases and property deeds, walking the fields looking for Roman remains, wading through streams, crawling through attics, measuring humps and bumps, investigating the claims of an abandoned plague village, taking part in two archaeological investigations at the Old Church of St Andrew, lunching in the pub, as well as collecting villagers’ memories and photographs. The resulting 128 page A4 book with its wealth of black and white photographs will be launched at a book signing on Thursday 5th December at The Duke of Cumberland 11.00 till 3.00pm and on Friday 6th December at Stable Cottage Longleat Lane 11.00 till 3.00pm.”
