HISTORY fans are invited to take part in an eight-week course at The Brampton Museum in Newcastle-under-Lyme.
The course which will be delivered by local historian Andrew Dobraszczyk will focus on major landowners in Newcastle-under-Lyme during the 18th and 19th centuries.
An in depth insight will be given into the Pilkington, Booth and Ayshford-Wise families, their contribution to the local economy and changes caused by the eventual break-up of their estates.
During the period surrounding these families the majority of land to the west and south of Newcastle formed part of the Butterton Hall and Clayton Hall estates and the course will discuss the history of the landowners, their country houses, villages and farms and how they interacted with the borough – as suppliers to the market and shops as well as
customers of businesses and banks.
The course, held at the Brampton Museum until February 21. For more information go to Baba’s What’s ON here.
