Meeting – ‘Worcestershire Turnpikes’ – Tuesday 3rd March 2015

February 16th, 2015 by JCope

Our next meeting on Tuesday 3rd March 2015 at 8pm sees Julian Hunt presenting ‘Worcestershire Turnpikes‘. Some of the Turnpikes in Worcestershire date back 300 years. The tolls levied along them paid for the maintenance of the main roads between the city and its surrounding towns. Prior to the Turnpikes the state of the roads made them impassable for much of the year and dangerous when passable.

Commences 8pm at St Saviour’s Church Hall, DY9 0NS. Visitors £2, including refreshments. Annual membership £10
