Bassetlaw is a vastly interesting but often overlooked area covering north Nottinghamshire. It contains stately homes, historic villages and a large section of the Trent valley. This talk brings together some of the most interesting places in the historic landscape of this area - great scenery, romantic old houses and stories of the people who lived there.Views: 24 | Enquiries: 0
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.
