Anthony Poulton-Smith - Ancient Trackways.

Anthony, at the outset, admitted his fascination with travel routes and words, specifically, place names, went back a long way. The number of books he had written about such topics across numerous English counties was testament to this.
His talk covered a wide range of indications of ancient trackways that we are likely to see today.

He explained the meaning that lies in placenames and man made featues in the landscape that indicate evidence of ancient trackways.
A fascinating talk that was the first one at our new meeting venue at Astley Village Community Centre.
