Afternoon, Wednesday 9th August – St Neots Town and Museum
In 2012 the Society assisted St Neots Museum in purchasing 68 Iron Age gold coins, (staters) found by a metal detectorist in the fields of Kimbolton in 2010. The exhibition has been restricted for insurance reasons but the coins will be on display this summer. The visit provides an opportunity to see the exhibition of the coins and the rest of the growing museum collection. After an initial view we shall depart for an approx. 90 minute long walk (at a gentle pace) of the town that has much of historical interest. We will be guided by one of the museum staff, stopping en-route at the parish church, praised in the revised Pevsner as being the most uniform late medieval church in the country, having both interesting glass and monuments. On return there will be tea and a chance to look further round the Museum.
Meet at the Museum in New Street (well sign posted). Own Transport.
