Waltham Abbey’s connections to Reformation England will be explored in a talk at a Woodford Green school.

Peter Huggins of the West Essex Archaeological Group (WEAG) will deliver the illustrated lecture at Woodford County High School in High Road, Woodford Green, on February 11.

Mr Huggins has directed excavations for the Waltham Abbey Historical Society and dug at Copped Hall where WEAG is continuing excavations this summer.

His talk will explore what his archaeological discoveries at Waltham Abbey can tell us about changes in theological practices that came about as a result of the Reformation.

The event begins at 7.45pm and is scheduled to end at 9.30pm. Refreshments will be available.

Entrance is free for WEAG members with non-members asked to provide a donation.

I attended a similar talk many years ago and should say, it was of great interest and I urge all those with any hint of interest in the area to attend.

I am very pleased to see that there will be refreshments on offer (I hope a vegetarian options also?) as last time it did go on a bit and there was a gentleman there who kept putting his hand up and asking awkward questions and even the Janitor started to get frustrated as it had gone over time and am sure he began to rattle his keys and kept looking at the Hall Clock.
