The Butcher, the Baker … and the Turbulent Priest

Our next presentation is at 7:30 pm on Thursday 21st November in the Clubroom and is entitled The Butcher, the Baker … and the Turbulent Priest.

In it we recall a time when the village was buzzing with commercial activity: when bakers from Titchmarsh supplied not only this village but also surrounding communities; when all one’s needs could be met by the variety of shopkeepers and tradesmen here; and when one’s thirst could be quenched in any one of six alehouses.

We also recount the fascinating but sad tale of the Revd. Atherton Powys whose colourful life was blighted by mental illness.

Refreshments and entry are free.
