The Wars of the Roses were a tumultuous period in English history, with family fighting family over the greatest prize in the kingdom - the throne of England.  Many families were involved but none symbolised the volatile nature of the period quite like the House of Beaufort. Their rise, fall, and rise again is the story of England during the fifteenth century, a dramatic century of war, intrigue and scandal both at home and abroad. Many books have been written about individual members of the dynasty, but never has the whole family been explored as one.


The hopes and fortunes of the family gradually came to rest upon the shoulders of a teenage widow named Margaret Beaufort and her young son Henry. From Margaret would rise the House of Tudor, the most famous of all England's royal houses and a dynasty that owed its crown to the blood of its forebears, the House of Beaufort. From bastards to princes, the Beauforts are medieval England's most captivating family.

 

Nathen is also the founder of the Henry Tudor Society and has featured discussing the Tudors on BBC radio and television, as well as in print and online media across the UK.

Weary of her Yorkshire county life of grouse moors and hunt balls, Amelia Dalton threw herself instead into converting a deep sea trawler into a holiday cruiser. She had to deal with the closed community of fishermen in NE Scotland in the 90s, negotiate red tape, oversee shipyards and deal with engineers, while coping with demanding shareholders and wayward employees. What began as a love affair with the romance of the sea became a battle to stay afloat financially and literally. This is a lively account of an adventure like no other and a voyage of self-discovery.


“Imagine A Year in Provence with the cast of Para Handy; add a touch of James Herriot, and you’ll get the drift of Mistress and Commander. Imagine Freya Stark, or some other dauntless female, taking on the alpha male communities of maritime Scotland and you’ll have the measure of Amelia Dalton.”  Peter Hughes, FT & Telegraph travel writer.


For ten years, Amelia Dalton organised cruises to the remote island chains of Scotland’s stunning West Coast. She worked closely with The National Trust for Scotland, and gained her commercial qualifications as a Captain. Amelia advises for individual clients on river and ocean cruises and runs her own travel company, Amelia Dalton Travel.

Back Roads Through Middle England


Friday, 21st September 2018


7:45pm - 8:45pm


St Peter's Church, Oundle

North Street, PE8 4AL


Tickets £8 adult/ £6 concession

Early bird £1 off till 14th September


Author Andrew Bibby sets out to cycle from the English Channel to the Humber, following the great stone belt of ‘cotswold’ limestone which has left its mark so powerfully on the countryside.


This is a journey of discovery into a very special landscape, and the author draws on themes as varied as social history, literature, land usage, agriculture and rural life today to gain a deeper understanding of the factors that shape the land. This wonderful book celebrates the beauty of this area of England, but also does very much more. Thoughtful, well-informed, sometimes provocative, Andrew goes beyond the superficial to reveal a Middle England which is considerably more complex than many might imagine. Includes chapters on Wellingborough, Corby and Oundle, and Stamford.


‘lf you asked your friends what route they'd recommend for an eight-day ride in the UK, pedalling the 430 miles from the Dorset coast to the Humber would probably not feature in their suggestions. That's one of the fascinating aspects of Andrew Bibby's journey to try to discover 'middle England', Duncan Dollimore, Cycle Magazine, (Book of the Month Feb/March 2018)

We are delighted to announce that Benedict Allen, one of the world’s most renowned adventurer-explorers, will be coming to Oundle as part of his brand-new tour of the UK.


Benedict Allen will tell the whole unvarnished truth of his most recent adventure – a solo expedition to Papua New Guinea, during which he filmed his journey to visit a community he had befriended thirty years earlier – when he hit the headlines after failing to turn up for a flight to Hong Kong, prompting his friends and family, and eventually the world media, to become    concerned for his wellbeing.


Benedict will recall the highs and lows of this awe-inspiring trip, tell exhilarating tales from his life as an explorer and show never-before-seen material from his travels across the globe.
