BEWI History Group visits Christchurch

Wendy, Vivienne, Sue, Sara, Glynis and Pat enjoyed their first meet-up on 17th June. This newly formed group of 6 makes visits to places of historical interest, each member taking responsibility for planning an expedition on a monthly basis.  Our first outing in beautiful warm summer sunshine was planned by Glynis and followed the Millennium Trail of Blue Plaques through the oldest part of Christchurch.  Setting off from Place Mill at the Quay, we followed Convent Walk through the gardens along the Mill Stream, past the Priory and Castle then paused at ‘Ye Olde George’ an original coaching inn for coffee. Next month Sue has booked the visit to Stonehenge, followed in August, arranged by Wendy, a guided tour of historical areas in Lymington..
