A Talk by Local Radical Historian and Amateur Naturalist Alan Brooke on :
Naturalist Societies in the Colne Valley
From the mid 19th Century to the early years of the 20th local Naturalist Societies proliferated in the villages of the Colne and Holme Valleys. Often established and led by self educated working men and artisans they brought a love of nature to enlighten lives dominated by the drudgery of industrialism. This talk looks at the ideas and activities of some of the personalities and the natural history they explored in the area.
