An AMERICAN’S EYE VIEW of NORTHAMPTONSHIRE


For our September meeting the speaker was Gary Schaeffer. Gary is a member of the elite Blue Badge Tourist Guides, lives locally (Great Brington) and is well known in the County as a gifted and entertaining presenter.


His talk took the form of a guided tour of Northamptonshire, using slides, and showing many of the beautiful and historic places in the County. Spanning castles, palaces, and village churches, his knowledge of each is impressive, even more so as he spoke without any need of notes!


Within the presentation he showed us Sulgrave Manor, with its intimate connection to the Washington family, a subject dear to the hearts of all Americans, and of equal fascination to the English!


In all aspects a most entertaining and enlightening evening!
