Our talk on November 20th will be give by Roger Cowley and Harold Clarke – past and current Head Guides of Sherborne Abbey – who will share with us the history of Sherborne Abbey, from its foundation to its dissolution (705 – 1539 AD). During this time, the site was home to a Cathedral, then a Priory and eventually an independent Abbey. A rather complicated history! The post-dissolution history will be covered in a sequel next year!
Do join us at 7.30pm at Church House in Bathwell Lane. We are a charity and ask for a suggested donation of £2 per member or £5 per non-member to cover costs (please Gift Aid your donation if you can). At this meeting, various Milborne Port history related items will be on sale in tome for Christmas! If you wish to become a member, and we very much hope that you do, please e-mail us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
