The Drovers come to Nantwich – Online Webinar


At 2pm on Wednesday 24 February 2021, Wyn Jones will deliver an online talk (using Zoom) about how Drovers used to visit Nantwich. This is a fascinating, but rarely told, story. For thousands of years drovers have moved livestock long distances to market. The people involved in this area probably needed to be bilingual, and highly trustworthy. A farmer selling stock would not see their money for weeks or even months. How did they manage to keep the animals in good condition after walking many, many miles? Learn how the routes the drovers took and how they coped with large groups of animals, thieves and illness.

If you wish to attend, you will need to purchase your place at least one hour before the talk – and joining details will be sent via email.
