'People and Places from the Past of Histon and Impington' by David Oates
Monday 1st July 2019 at 7:30pm
Histon Baptist Church, 2 Poplar Rd, Histon, Cambridge CB24 9LN
Using pictures from his family’s archive, David will introduce us to some more of the many individuals who have left their mark on the villages over the years, among them William Robinson, Ray Woodward, Douglas Bowles and Jordan Ison.
Going much further back he will examine whether archaeologists have unearthed enough evidence to see whether King Peada of Mercia lived in the village in 650 AD. We shall hear from the Histon poet William Youngman and we shall get a new angle on the Impington heroine Elizabeth Woodcock.
Open to all. Members free and visitors £3, accompanied children free. Refreshments available.
