Thrapston & District u3a and The National Trust site at Lyveden - A Shared Research Project

The Thrapston & District u3a Shared Research Group presented the Resource File they had produced about Meriel, Lady Tresham, to Emily Wolfe, the Operations Manager of The National Trust site at Lyveden.
The National Trust hopes to get this bound into an A3 book which will be available to everyone once the site at Lyveden re opens later this year. The content provides useful information that can be incorporated into interpretation at the Manor and will enable Meriel to be an integral part of the story.
It is hoped that the group will now research another aspect of Lyveden so that more resources are available for those who may be interested.
