Sleuthing at The Angel

On Wednesday 9th February members of Coleorton Heritage Group and friends got together at The Angel Inn, on The Moor for our second "Sleuthing" event to see if we could identify some faces and places in old photos. The Heritage Group have some photos that we didn't have names for and many people brought their own collections.

We achieved some success at identification and had a great time doing it. Further Sleuthing dates planned are:

  • Wednesday 6th April
  • Wednesday 8th June

Starting at 10.30am.

These are informal events with coffee and biscuits provided by The Angel. We make a charge of £2.50 to cover this.

If you have a photo you want help with do come along - or come anyway and enjoy. For further info email or phone Sandra on 01530 440000.

The Angel do lunch. Please book directly with them - phone 01530 834742
