This webpage will feature Cambridgeshire Conferences, days out and events. This will obviously not be a comprehensive list, but will feature items brought to the website team, so it is up to event promoters to let us know and within reason will will promote events on the understanding we do not comment or endorse any individual event unless stated
Cambridge Antiquarian Society Days Out 2016:
For CAS Excursions, Please contact Tony Kirby for more details (01223 844146) You will see on Wednesday 15th June they will be coming to Hildersham Church to learn more about its history.
Wednesday 15 June: Linton and Hildersham:
A visit to two churches, St Mary’s, Linton, and Holy Trinity, Hildersham. At Linton, we shall be met by the Ven Alan Clarkson, who will talk about the history and architecture of the church and its relationship to the village. Hopefully there will be time to take a short walk to the nearby Grade II-listed URC (formerly Congregational) church, with its interesting table tombs, to ensure an ecumenical flavour to the day. We will then repair to Hildersham, where Andrew Westwood-Bate will tell us about the history and archaeology of the church, and particularly its stunning Victorian chancel decorations (Clayton & Bell, 1889-90)
Tea will be provided at Hildersham.
Meet at St Mary’s church, Linton at 2.45 p.m. Please note that there is very limited parking in the vicinity of the church: there is a public car park off Coles Lane, opposite the village hall (at the start of the one-way system) and also on-street parking in the High Street. At Hildersham there is some parking outside the church, and more at the village hall (about 5 minutes’ walk from the church, on the other side of the river).
Linton is accessible by bus: Stagecoach service 13. The 13.55 from Drummer Street arrives there at 14.34. To reach Hildersham, we shall need to rely on those members travelling by car to provide seats for bus users: please indicate on the booking form if you can do so. There are return buses to Cambridge at 17.07, 17.37 and 18.02 but please note that catching these involves a walk of about half-a-mile and then crossing the A1307, which is very busy from the late afternoon onwards.
Cost: £6.00 per head (to include tea)
Booking deadline: Wednesday 8 June
