Thursday, 25th November 2021 – Molesey’s Enclosure Story: Looking for lost fields – 8.00pm

There is a charge of £1 for members and £3 for non-members which can be paid by cash or card.

St Lawrence Junior School Church Road East Molesey

This year is the two hundredth anniversary of the enclosure of Molesey’s open fields. It is hard to exaggerate the significance of this event. The manorial system of farming in existence for over 700 years was swept away. A major part of the Society’s research effort this year has been to piece together the story of the enclosure. Who was involved? What were their motives? Who were the winners and losers? How did it change Molesey and what traces of its legacy can we find in the landscape today?

The program for 2022 is still be finalised so dates are still subject to change!
