The River Trent between Nottingham and Gainsborough has a wayward and enthralling history of its own. This talk takes us for a journey down the river, looking at lost channels, forgotten ferries and how the changing course of the river has affected the villages along the Trent.

About Adrian Gray

I am a Cambridge-educated historian with around 25 published books on a variety of historical topics which you can see on my Amazon author page at: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Adrian-Gray/e/B0034P9K2M/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1529568674&sr=1-1

I specialise in the history of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, but nationally also Victorian crime and social history, the history of religious freedom, and the history of education and government inspection (which is a lot more interesting than it sounds!). I am one of the leaders of local community efforts to develop Christian heritage for tourism in Notts and Lincs, leading up to 'Mayflower 400' but also including the many other ways in which people from the region have helped to change the world.

I provide a range of lively and well-illustrated talks that can be tailored for local needs.
