Audlem Grammar School

History Society talk
The story of an Audlem Headmaster involving persecution, rebellion, death, fire, lies and deceit!

#The Old Grammar School 
One of the most important buildings in Audlem is the old Grammar School built in 1655.

Documents which lay in the building for 300 years describe it's construction. Celia Bloor will talk about this and then............

#The Italian connection 
Ian Bloor will tell how we learned that one of the later headmasters of the Grammar School was born in Tuscany and is buried in Audlem Cemetery. Intrigued we investigated.

Ian will tell you what we know about the headmaster's life before he came to Audlem and what little we know about his time here.

Starting at 7.30pm on Thursday March 15th in the Scout and Guide Hall.

All welcome, non-members £2.
