The evening will commence with the FRAG Annual General Meeting. This is expected to be brief given that we held a deferred meeting for prior years in September 2021.
We will then move on to our talk, The Lost Villages of Peterborough.
This lecture shows changes to the villages that have been swallowed up within the built-up area of Peterborough.
As Peterborough has expanded so it has engulfed many small villages (such as Orton Waterville pictured above). This talk will help you picture the very different character and landscape of the area which has relatively recently been displaced.
Speakers: June and Vernon Bull
June and Vernon are keen local historians and founder members of the Peterborough Local History Society. They are enthusiastic collectors of old postcards of Peterborough and have amassed a collection of nearly 3,500 originals from the late Victorian period to the early 1960s. Since 1988 they have published a series of Peterborough picture postcard books, as well as other local history titles.
