After our incredibly successful talk held earlier in November, I would like to tell you about our next talk, using Zoom, which is to held on Tuesday, 8 December at 7.30 pm.
This time we have Barbara Moth, who is a prominent member of the Cheshire Gardens Trust, and the subject will be
The influence of salt on local historic parks and gardens
Barbara will be telling us about the Cheshire Gardens Trust and the research and recording of historic parks and gardens in the Northwich area. It is amazing to discover just how many of these designed landscapes have been influenced by the underlying geology and brine extraction, or have been owned, funded or created by salt magnates. Today this heritage is still being influenced and changed by the chemical industry in the area.
Might I also add that this is an excellent time of the year to look at landscapes while on your daily walks. With the trees now bare of leaves, you can see the distant views, why they look as they do and why perhaps that particular clump of trees was planted as it was – perhaps to frame a particular aspect or to hide an unsightly building.
If you would like to attend the Zoom meeting please use the following email address to express your interest.
As before I will initially send out an acknowledgement and then nearer the time send a Zoom link together with the meeting ID and password so that you can join the meeting.
I will also send out a reminder in advance of the meeting.
This meeting is free, although as we have no income at the moment and we are obviously paying our speakers, any contributions would be gratefully received. The meeting is open to non-members, contacts and friends and relations from all over the country, or even the world. Geography is no limitation.
So, please do join us on 8 December and I look forward to seeing you then.
