Summer Visits 2023

What a fantastic summer it has been for the Society! We’ve enjoyed four of the very best summer outings that we have ever had.

In June, we met at Castor and our friend Professor Stephen Upex explained all the Roman remains of a palace not bettered anywhere outside Rome.

From there we moved on to Hunstanton and whilst many of us had no doubt visited numerous times before, on this occasion we were treated to a memorable look around the town’s heritage centre where our hosts, the Hunstanton Society explained some of the history of the surrounding area.

Later, in July, we visited Nassington where we all thought we were in for a very wet evening but just as we went outside to commence our tour, the sun returned and once again a superb time was enjoyed by all – and the cakes afterwards cannot ever be forgotten!

Finally, in August, we met at Burghley, not to view the magnificent Elizabethan house but to look at trees! Our guide for the evening, Peter Glassey the Head Forester, knew every tree in the park and his sheer enthusiasm enticed us all to get involved.
