Nostalgic talk on Charmouth to give different view of the village

THE follow-up to a popular local history talk will be held in Charmouth on Friday, September 20, giving a very different view of the village. 

Neil Mattingly and Bill Burn will give the talk ‘Charmouth Then and Now Part II’ using old photos of Charmouth merged with modern day scenes. The event follows on from their first talk last year, which proved hugely popular.  

By merging photos of old Charmouth with modern day scenes, the rich history of the village will be brought to life. The Coronation Parade of 1911, the many spectacular lorry crashes, smugglers and shipwrecks, soldiers and coastguards – all will be seen in a new perspective.

Along with the photos will be many of the more unusual tales of village life and the characters who have added to its fascinating past.

The talk will be held at Charmouth Village Hall from 7pm pm on Friday, September 20. Entry is £3 for non-members of Charmouth Local History Society.
