Monday 12th June 2017  7.30pm

A talk by David Templeman on “Mary Queen of Scots – from Sheffield to Fotheringhay – the Final Journey 1584-7"

An Illustrated Talk by David Templeman,

We follow Mary into further seclusion under her new zealous custodian, Sir Amyas Paulet. She is involved in the Babington plot at Chartley Manor and the charge is High Treason.

This talk relates the compelling tale of the events leading up to and including Mary’s trial and execution. Mary’s courage and conduct come to the fore as she takes her tragic story through Wingfield Manor, Tixall and culminating in the climax at Fotheringhay Castle where she is tried and executed for High Treason.

Was she guilty? This is the question this talk addresses.

This is the final installment in the story of one of the great historical figures and all Mary’s qualities come to the fore in this exciting last chapter of her life. Do not miss it!!

A talk by John Pilkington on “Castles in Yorkshire, defending God’s own County since 1066”

A lot of people think that they are familiar with Yorkshire’s medieval castles, but there are many more castles in this county than most people realise. There are so many that it is not feasible for someone to visit them all, and because little survives at some of them it can be a disappointing visit for most.  Following a brief look at how the county’s fortifications fit in to our history this presentation covers how to visit castle sites from the comfort of your armchair.

7.30 start
