Talks at Linskill

Prior to the Coronavirus pandemic, regular Heritage Talks were presented at the Linskill Centre, where people could attend in person. It has been necessary to suspend these while restrictions were in place. However, these will be resumed once it is safe to do so. Watch this space for more details.
