Fame & Fortune

Three talks about significant figures that left their mark on the town:

Geoff Bryant uses the Probate Inventory of John Nelthorpe who died in 1692 to paint a picture of Baysgarth House and what it might have been like to live there in the seventeenth century.

Philip Pape was an accomplished stonemason and a great sculptor.  He was also a tutor at the Grimsby Art School in the 1960s, and a choirmaster.  Nigel Land updates what we know about Pape following an exhibition at Baysgarth Museum in 2015 and an appeal for more information about him.

Monty Martin has written about Barton author Ted Lewis and has co-produced a trail touring sites in the town associated with Lewis.  For those unable to follow the trail, this talk is the next best thing.

Talks take place at the Assembly Rooms, Queen Street (except 16 September) and commence at 7.30pm.  For up to date information visit:

Admission for Civic Society members is free.  Non-members £2.
