Launch of Trentside Holmes booklet 20 February 2012

The Trentside Holmes booklet will be launched on Friday 9th March at The Methodist Hall at Sutton on Trent at 7pm.

Trent Vale's Tales stall during the research of the Holmes.

As part of Trent Vale 's Tales, the Sutton on Trent Local History Society have been researching three Trentside Holmes villages, exploring their fascinating history and celebrating this now rare form of traditional farming.

The wet grasslands of the Holmes, along the River Trent, are still managed as they were hundreds of years ago, providing grazing for local farmers and a delightful environment for residents of the area to enjoy in many different ways.

The booklet has been funded through the Vale's Tales project managed by Groundwork Cresswell, Mansfield and Ashfield.
