The Till Valley Archaeological Society is staging a new local history exhibition at Heatherslaw Mill.
It will include fascinating documents dating back to early medieval times showing that Branxton and Crookham have had a long and often troubled history with death and disease never far away.
On a lighter note, Crookham and Branxton have produced some famous sons, including Peter Anderson Graham, a shoemaker’s son who became editor of Country Life magazine.
The exhibition is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11am–4pm to September 25 and on the Sunday and Monday of bank holidays.
TillVAS thanks Linda Bankier, Woodhorn Archives, Chris Burgess, Ford & Etal Estates, Elspeth Gilliland and Julia Nolan of Heatherslaw Mill and others who have helped with research.
