Thursday 9th April

Unfortunately the planned talk by Robert and David Saxton of the Viking Society about the influence of the Vikings in and around Rutland has had to be cancelled due to illness.

The good news is that instead Lawrence Fenelon will be giving a talk on Rutland’s Railways.

Rutland was largely by-passed by the early main lines to the north, but nonetheless gained a number of links to the main network. This talk will discuss how the early railway system developed in the East Midlands and how Rutland became integrated with it.

7:30pm – Admission Free – All Welcome.
