Next Talk is on 29th January 2024 - Bathford Parish Hall at 8:00pm.
"History of Larkhall" presented by Kathleen Holden and June Hannan. - The Larkhall History Society continues to flourish, evidence of a vibrant community. In this talk co-chairs Kath Holden and June Hannam will describe aspects of the history of Larkhall from the late 18th to the 20th century. The Parish of St Saviours, serving Larkhall, was originally part of Walcot Parish. Larkhall developed as a village between 1840 and 1860, centred around occupations such as transport, laundry work and the mills on the Lambrook. The history of the Bladud Spa and the health treatments offered will also be explored. During the war, Larkhall took its share of punishment as evidenced by oral histories collected from local residents. Larkhall has always been centred around the Larkhall Inn and has a thriving retail sector with shops not part of national chains and which are patronised from people far and wide. Kath and June will explore this and many other aspects of the history of the area.
