Social Evening on 21st March 2019 – a Review of the Heritage of Ilott Wharf

Thursday 21st March 2019 7:30 pm at Donisthorpe Woodlands Centre (DMs), Church Road, Donisthorpe DE12 7PY

Our final social meeting of the “winter” season will feature an update by Chairman Peter Oakden, and Vice-President Orest Mulka on the work undertaken at Ilott Wharf, and a presentation on the results of the 2018 Heritage Lottery Funded Archaeological Survey which was done by Leicester University at the site of the wharf.  This will be an illustrated talk and all members and friends are welcome to attend.

It is hoped that the talk will be followed by some previously unseen film footage taken by the late Tom Henshaw; this is, however, dependent on whether the films can be digitised in time.

Please note this event is being held on a Thursday and not on a Monday as has been customary.
