Sun 28 Jul: Beating the Bounds film

Join us in St Marys Church at 11.30am for a showing of the film.

Tragedy, Bravery and Mystery: Beating the Bounds 1924

This is a tale of tragedy, since three children drowned in the Evenlode. Of bravery, since heroic efforts at rescue led to the award of two medals for gallantry. And mystery – since it is difficult to understand why the final group of boundary walkers took the punt upstream from where others had crossed safely, and with such catastrophic consequences. Using eye-witness accounts, testimony at the inquest, and contemporary photographs, Rob Stepney pieced together the events of that fateful day.
