Five Villans, Eight Bordars & an Exon

Our next illustrated talk is coming up on Saturday 5th October.; 7.30 in the Village Hall.   
This time we will be travelling back to 1086 to see what the Domesday Book entries for Corston can – and cannot – tell us about the Saxo-Norman village.

We will also be looking at Corston’s place in the eleventh century Somerset economy, the particular contribution Corston made to the Domesday process and some aspects of the village that have remained almost unchanged over a thousand years.

As ever, tickets are available in advance from Martin Seymour & Diane Philips, or on the door on the night.

And yes, there is more than one Domesday entry for Corston, but to find out why you will have to join us!
