Forthcoming Axminster Heritage Centre talks

Just a note of clarification – there will be minimal overlap between the two upcoming local history talks which mention fire in their titles!

David Knapman’s talk on 24 April (19:30 in the Bradshaw Room at Thomas Whitty House) entitled ‘How Axminster was Shaped by Water and Fire’,

is primarily about events from the late 18th to the early 20th centuries.


Professor Mark Stoyle’s talk on 3 May (18:00 in the Minster) entitled ‘Axminster in Flames’ is about events in the 1640s – during the English Civil War.


Tickets for both can be purchased at the Heritage Centre.
