Have you ever wondered how the Johnson family of Vermont, USA came to inherit the Harpur Crewe Estate? You can hear the full details of this fascinating story in a forthcoming presentation in Ticknall.
This event will not now take place in 2020 as Mr & Mrs Johnson have postponed their visit to the UK until next year. More later.

A chance to meet the family, weather and flights permitting.
This talk will be of interest to students of all ages.
