Welcome to the Cranmer Local History Group


DH Lawrence's Eastwood
GR Redford Wednesday 3rd September 2014
 
David Amos entertained the Group last night with an informative and entertaining talk on DH Lawrence and Eastwood.

The talk was wide-ranging covering not only the works of DH Lawrence, but also the people and places that some of his characters and locations were based on.

The talk also gave a good insight of the life and living conditions of the colliers of Eastwood in Lawrence's (and beyond) era.
