COACH TRIP TO WISBECH 11 MAY 2016




We had a wonderful outing to Wisbech organised by Margi Blunden which offerred much in the way of history, fascinating people who have lived there and literary associations.

We visited the Wisbech Museum and had a very interesting guided tour.
Lunch was at the Rose and Crown Hotel.
The afternoon we visited the Octavia Hill Birthplace House and including a tour and tea.
We also took in the Thomas Clarkson Memorial.

Here are a few photos taken during the day:
The first was beside the Clarkson Memorial, the second having our lunch and the third was of a plaque we found in the garden of Octavia Hill House. The final one was in the Wisbech Museum.

PREVIOUS OUTINGS

A trip took place by the Civic Society on 15 July 2015.
This was designed around William Butterfield who was a friend of Henry Le Strange. Together they planned the layout of Hunstanton with its several greens. It is probable that Butterfield designed The Golden Lion Hotel. He then went on to design the row of houses in St Edmunds Terrace.
This renowned Victorian architect was responsible for many buildings but church architecture was his forte. We went to see St Alban the Martyr, Holborn and All Saints, Margaret Street London.
