Norton’s Flying Legacy

posted in: News 2

Last year, Ian Rotherham, from the Landscape Heritage Research Foundation gave a presentation to the Civic Society about Norton’s Flying Legacy.

The project has recently been awarded Heritage Lottery funding to allow it to continue.  The new project entitled ‘From RFC Airfield to City Suburb’ will run for fifteen months and will delve further into the history of the WWI Aeroplane Repair Depot at Norton and inter-war aviation.  The launch is on Tuesday 30th July and an invitation is extended to Civic Society members.  If you are interested in this topic and would like to volunteer to help, click here to view the project webpage for more information.

    Hope you don’t mind me sending this to you as it is an enquiry. Please could you let me know the contact details for Professor Ian Rotherham regarding his talk about Norton aerodrome. I belong to another group in Dronfield attached to the Parish Church as well as Dronfield Civic Society and names of speakers are very much appreciated for the new programme starting in March 2020.

    Many thanks if you can help with this enquiry.

      Hi Pam,
      When Ian gave the talk for the Civic Society, we used the contact details which are on the poster and the phone number 0114 2724227. Hope you might find that helpful.
