Historian to talk about lodge

Have your say

A TALK is to be held about the use of the Longshaw Estate lodge during the First World War, when it was home to wounded soldiers.

The estate was used when military hospitals were unable to cope.

In February 1915 the then-owner of Longshaw Lodge, the Duke of Rutland, offered his lodge as a place for treatment and recuperation.

Local historian Thelma Griffiths will talk next Wednesday, November 21, from 2pm to 4pm at the Moorland Centre on the estate.

Tickets cost £7 and include a cream tea.
