Our next exhibition, High Streets and Hedgerows: Watton at Stone opens on Saturday and one of the things we’ve been told by several residents is that on particularly hot days you can still smell smoked salmon as you walk past the site of the old Holden du Cros Ltd. factory! We’ve got several photographs in the exhibition of workers at the factory (and if you recognise any of them we’d love to know names!) as well as some recorded memories of life in the factory.
The exhibition runs from Saturday 2nd Mary – Saturday 27th June so pop in and learn about the people and places that make Watton at Stone special.
