Guided Walk – 18th June 2017 at 2.30pm.

East Beeston
Sunday 18 June, 2017 2.30pm, (Assemble in the car park of the Free Church on Salthouse Lane).

This walk starts more or less at the boundary of Nottingham and Beeston on Broadgate.It moves along Broadgate and down Humber Road into an area largely developed in the late 19th Century as a suburb of the core village of Beeston.  This was once a thriving industrial area with bicycle works (Humber) and boilers (Beeston Boiler Company) and houses for the work force, as well as churches to serve the community, were built.  Today the industrial core of the area has gone, and we no longer think of this as anything other than part of Beeston.   The walk will then continue back to the High Road junction with Humber Road, where it will end.

SUNDAY 12th June FREE Guided Walk

Join Professor Beckett on the first of this year’s Guided Walks tomorrow, Sunday, 12th June starting from the Podium in Beeston Square at 2.30pm. The walk is entitled ‘the Inns and Pubs of Beeston’ and will last about 2 hours.

This walk, which will remain firmly outside of the pubs and inns of Beeston takes the form of a walk from the podium of Beeston Square to different pubs and inns around Beeston taking in their history and where possible their ownership and occupation.

It will not be practicable to visit all of the known pub sites, but reference will be made both to those we can see and also to those that will remain out of sight but which most people are likely to be aware of anyway.

Walkers will gain an introduction to the hostelries of Beeston, including the older inns (now generally rebuilt)  and the modern public houses.

Public transport. Any bus or tram to Beeston Square.

Car Parking: Foster Avenue Car Park is free on Sundays.
