Thursday 28th January 2016 – 7.30PM – at Binham Village Hall
Talk and Presentation by Dr Adam Longcroft
Binham Local History Group are delighted to welcome Dr Adam Longcroft to talk on the buildings of Little Walsingham.
Over several years volunteers from the Norfolk Historic Buildings Group have completed surveys and analysis of some 70 buildings in Little Walsingham and their documentary history. This work was placed in the context of the landscape archaeology of the town, medieval pilgrimage and the roles of the Priory and Friary in Walsingham.
Adam previously carried out survey work on houses in Binham and he will compare findings.
Adam is a Senior Lecturer and Academic Director of Taught Programmes at UEA, Chairman of Norfolk Historic Buildings Group, and has a great passion for historic buildings.
