Event Details

An illustrated talk by Marion Maxwell. Marion’s interest in the enigma surrounding the history of the Nixon Hall goes back many years. Her talk will tell the story of how the grand mansion was built in the late 18th Century yet was largely a ruin some 50 years later. Names associated with the Hall include Nixon, Hassard, Fawcett, Denham and Hawthorn. In it’e heyday, the house and its tastefully landscaped demesne provided the setting for lavish parties, yet it became, in the end, the subject of bitter court proceedings. It eventually burnt down and was demolished. Nixon Hall remains an intriguing site, for although little remains above ground, traces of landscaping can still be seen. This is the first time that history of the Hall and its occupants has been so thoroughly researched. It’s shaping up to be a great night – come along to find out the full story.

Tea and refreshments will be served. For more information email:info@c2c.org.uk Website: www.c2c.org.uk Facebook:www.facebook.com/c2cgp/
