Community Hall, Wellington, Somerset

CELEBRATE THE VICTORY AT WATERLOO IN THE TOWN FROM WHICH THE DUKE TOOK HIS TITLE

Somerset has a special connection with the Duke of Wellington and the battle of Waterloo. This day of talks and walks seeks to illustrate those links.

Speakers will include Wendy Lutley of the National Trust on the Wellington Monument, Colin Spackman of Wellington Museum on the Duke and the town, Mary Siraut, VCH County Editor on Somerset's connections with the battle and John Page from Axbridge on the important diaries of Charles Greville.

In the afternoon participants can enjoy a guided walk round Wellington or visit the Wellington Monument. See attached programme.

Numbers are limited by the venue and the number who can be safely taken on the Wellington walk so prior booking is essential if you wish to take this option.

There are still spaces available.
