History Group visit June
13 members set out for Broadway Tower. We were given a talk on William Morris and the Civil Defence Corps which used the tower during WW11 as a lookout post, watching for enemy aircraft. There is an exhibition of artifacts and war memorabilia on the second floor, and on the third floor is an exhibition of items connected with William Morris himself. Some brave membes made it to the top of the tower where there are spectacular 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside.
By this time, some of us were wilting in the heat, and made our way back to the really nice cafe where we all met to have a welcome cold drink.
Apart from the heat, it was a really interesting and enjoyable visit.
