Maps, maps, maps: Slingsby Local History session moved to 28th May

The Local History session this month has moved to the 28th May, at the usual time of 7.30pm and in the Methodist schoolroom. In this session we will share the exciting discovery by Chris Churches of a new map of Slingsby, dated 1720. We’ll look at the map up close and also revisit our other early maps from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Responding to interests from our last map session, we’ll also look at some of the detailed Ordnance Survey data. Come along and see how your house and garden changed from the 1850s to the 1950s. 

Members £2; Guests £3.
