Colne Valley – A History of a Pennine Landscape
Thu 10 Mar, 7:30 pm–8:30 pm
About the event
nThe Friends of Marsden Library (FOML) present a reading by Robert Vincent, author of Colne Valley – A History of a Pennine Landscape.
This book is a tribute to the visual strengths of the Colne Valley’s landscape and a narrative of its development. It is inspired by the author’s experience of living for over 30 years in a house whose built form reflects the Valley’s centuries-long dual economy of domestic cloth making and small-scale farming, and whose stones were quarried from the hillside where it stands.
From affection for his family home at Harts Hold grew a wider understanding, and a deeper appreciate, of the landscape as a whole. The book shares both the enthusiasm and the learning that developed during that journey.
The book is published by Huddersfield Local History Society.
Doors 7pm. Refreshments available.
Free (booking recommended)
