Laxton. Farming in an open field village exhibition

A fascinating exhibition on the open field village of Laxton is running at the Weston Pavilion at Nottingham University until 16 August. The exhibition draws on the Manvers collection of estate records along with manorial records from the Tallents archives.

There has been a series of lectures on aspects of the village. The next one, on Wednesday, 15 July, is by Professor John Beckett and is entitled "Why has Laxton survived?"

Further information (including PDFs of the display boards, slides from the earlier lectures and a video podcast) available on the university website:
