The East Indies comes to Lincolnshire: the Story of Maidenwell Manor
Afternoon Talk organised by the Society for Lincolnshire History & Archaeology (SLHA) and presented by Naomi Field, Senior Archaeological Consultant, Prospect Archaeology Ltd, Lincoln.
What connection does a tiny hamlet in the Lincolnshire Wolds have with an Elizabethan buccaneer, the Skinners Livery Company of London and Basingstoke Corporation? In 2019 a planning application was made for the demolition of the old farmhouse at Maidenwell and its replacement with a new one. A programme of documentary research, combined with archaeological and historic building investigations has thrown light on the history of Maidenwell Manor and its farm.
The event will start at 2.30pm.
Admission is free. Bookings close at 16.00 hours on Saturday 30th January or earlier if fully booked.
