The History and Archaeology of Hoad: an illustrated talk by Dan Elsworth

Thursday, 24 September at 7.30 pm 

Admission £3.00

Dan Elsworth, director of Green Lane Archaeology, will give an illustrated talk about the history and archaeology of Ulverston's iconic landmark, Hoad Hill, topped by the Sir John Barrow Monument.

The monument was erected in 1850 in memory of Sir John Barrow, a native of Ulverston. Barrow was born in Dragley Beck in 1764, the child of a journeyman tanner. From such a humble beginning, Barrow rose through the ranks of the navy to become the second secretary of the Admiralty and one of Ulverston's most famous citizens.

You will learn a lot more about Hoad Hill from Dan's fascinating talk and, because Dan is a professional archaeologist, you can rely on him to dig much deeper into Hoad's history. 

The admission price includes a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit or two.
