On Tuesday 12 April, a group of Bradgate Heights residents visited the Secret Garden at Glenfield Hospital. Here are some photos, videos and articles about the fabulous attraction. We all really enjoyed it and plan to go again sometime. There will be a small cafe and a book nook there, too. The manager is Karen James who is always pleased to greet parties of local people who live and work in the vicinity.
Further reading. You can see more about the walled garden at the following link from Leicestershire and Rutland Gardens Trust (opens in a new window.)
One of our regular speakers, John Poulter, walked the full length of the Lakeland “High Street” in 1968. He gave a presentation for the Roman Roads Research Association and we highly commend it to our audience!
At the time John had every reason to believe that the road was Roman, but doubts have arisen since. Comparisons are offered with pictures of other Roman roads traversing high ground in northern Britain, and the author draws upon the experience which he has accumulated since to reach a verdict which is negative. Those watching the presentation may, of course, draw their own conclusions. Highly commended and the video can be viewed here :
