Heritage Open Days 2014: Fulneck Remembers WW1

  • 13 September 2014

Come and visit Fulneck Settlement, a delightful hillside village with glorious panoramic views across Tong valley and buildings of architectural interest. Experience a commemoration of WW1 with a focus on the men and women associated with Fulneck and their contribution to the war effort. Those who died will be remembered along with those who served and returned. Within the Fulneck Museum you will find a new exhibition to mark the centenary of WW1. In the church there will be WW1 photos, memoirs, medals and objects displayed, which have been loaned by Fulneck residents. For the first time, original letters from the trenches can be viewed and newspaper extracts from the local Pudsey paper will be on display. Come and join a tour of the settlement, listen to the famous Snetzler organ or enjoy the popular war songs in the former Boys' Brigade Headquarters whilst having refreshments.
