Saturday 4th October. The Local History Group will now meet in the Grapes at noon (not 10.45am) to look at maps and identify things to record. This change of plan is because of heavy rain forecast for the morning. If the weather situation improves the walk could possibly go ahead in the afternoon, but it may be better to postpone till following weekend.
[superseded post follows]
The Slingsby local history group will conduct a special village mapping session.
We aim to have a walk around the village with Peter Smithson to identify, photograph and map positions of some of the topographical features which have disappeared, mostly due to ploughing and building changes. The idea is to record our findings on a modern map for future reference.
Meet at the top of Railways Street outside The Grapes at10.45 a.m. Be prepared for rain!
For those who would like to, we aim to finish our tour with a sandwich and discussion in The Grapes afterwards.
We may have a follow-up session on Saturday 11th October if needed.
