Noel Adams will lead a guided tour through Hurst looking at buildings with particular reference to the Adams family and their flax, clothing, wool and then legal and medical interests. The tale of the Adams family is a true Forsyte Saga, a rise to prominence and wealth, Richard Adams, who wrote Watership Down, is a descendant, as is Noel. Despite being an Australian, he has an infectiously interesting understanding of English history and of his family, it should be a colourful evening.We will start at Hurst Barton at 6 p.m. and work our way up to The Grange in Water Street, ending up in the churchyard.
