Castle Hill Almondbury (West Yorkshire UK)

On the 14th of October I shall be talking to the Hebden Bridge Local History Society about the lost Kingdom of Elmet. This was a small British Kingdom which emerged after the collapse of Roman rule in the area which is now West Yorkshire. Only a few tantalizing scraps of evidence have survived but a close examination can throw some light onto this shadowy part of northern history.

Venue: Methodist Church, Bridge Lanes, Hebden Bridge HX7 6EU

Start time: 7.30 pm

Cost: £3
