Friday, 13th August 2021 at 7:30p.m.

We are pleased to announce that our re-scheduled Annual General Meeting Plus for the year 2021 will be held at the Village Hall on      Friday August 13th. Doors open and refreshments available from 7:30pm. Meeting commences 8:00pm.

Following the very short official business, we will welcome Geoffrey Marsh, a villager, author and museum director, who will be giving a talk entitled:

‘Discovering Life in Elizabethan England’

How do we know what life was like during the reigns of the Tudors? What is the real evidence which lies behind the writing of Hilary Mantel’s trilogy or Maggie O’Farrell’s Hamnet? Geoffrey Marsh’s new book,  Living   with   Shakespeare,   is   an   exploration   of   life   in    London in   the   1590’s   based  on   little-known  and  largely  unpublished evidence. In  this  illustrated  talk,  he  will  explain the  challenges,  frustrations and occasional breakthroughs, “like doing a 3-d crossword puzzle which has most of the clues missing”, which has allowed him to reconstruct the parish where Shakespeare lived while writing Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Merchant of Venice.

So don’t worry if you are not a fan of Shakespeare’s plays: this is an investigation of the real backdrop to Shakespeare’s career and the lives of the extraordinary ‘cast’ of real characters – radical doctors,  composers, musicians, international traders, MPs and more who lived alongside him.

A formal Agenda will be sent to all members by email with financial statements and minutes of last year’s AGM prior to the meeting.

And now for something completely different!

No, not a throwback to Monty Python, but in fact to something far earlier,  in  August  1843,   when   Hasler  Hollist,   who   had   only      completed building Lodsworth House  in  1839,  decided  that  he  should  invite      Lodsworthians and others from adjacent Parishes to join him on a “Perambulation of the Liberty & Parish of Lodsworth.”

Accordingly, the Lodsworth Heritage Society has decided to repeat the exercise some 187 years later! The boundary of the parish was quite different in those days, extending North as far as Blackdown as well as being considerably narrower in the West. The full perimeter of the Parish in 2021 extends to over twenty-five miles, which would take many days to walk, so for this first attempt we will go to the Southern boundary, which many might be  forgiven for thinking is in Selham! The map below, outlines the Parish boundary in pink, and as shown we will cross the old railway line and pass close by Gallows Hill. The walk will commence at the car park of The Three Moles and after a gentle stroll of around two hours we will return to the pub where refreshments will be available for those that wish to stay. The date chosen for the event is Sunday, September 5th, starting from the pub at 10:00. Members of the LHS are invited, with guests and children very  welcome as well as dogs, but on leads please. Will you join us? Please let us know.

Put the date in your diary:

On  Thursday,  14th October,  Michael Blencowe  of  the  Sussex  Wildlife Trust will be giving a talk entitled ‘Wildlife during  Lockdown’.

This promises to be as amusing as  educative.
