Saturday, September 15
11:00 am - 4:00 pm
St Firmin's Church
S E Midlands
Organised by: North Crawley Historical Society
An exhibition of old photos, historical documents and memorabilia with emphasis on the role of women in the village over the years. A field walk in the afternoon.
St Firmin’s Church dates from the early 13th century and is of considerable interest in its own right. The Rood Screen (c. 1400) is very special. Exhibits will showcase some of the roles undertaken by women in the village, including during World War One. North Crawley is set in attractive countryside and the planned Field Walk of about 2 hours will explore some of this. There will be a commentary on the field names and historically important features.
Exhibition – 1100-1600
Village Walk – 1400-1600
Pre-booking: Pre-book for walk only. Call: 01234 391205 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Access: Access to the church is via a wide gravelled path of around 75 yards; wheelchair users will find it manageable, but it is harder when damp. There are two steps to access toilet facilities which are 50 metres away. Assistance dogs welcome.
The field walk will be at a gentle pace, just over 4 miles in 2 hours. We recommend trousers and sturdy footwear – trainers are fine. Walking is on grass footpaths for the most part. There are some stiles.
Directions: For the guided walk meet at the church at 1400.
