BUILDING BLOCKS OF HISTORY 23rd AUGUST

Things happen every day, big and small. Together they make our family history, our local history, our country’s history and sometimes they become part of global history.

All of these things happened on 23rd August in years gone by.

In 1305 William Wallace was executed.

In 1617 the first one way streets were established in London.

In 1926 Rudolph Valentino died.

In 2015 we enjoyed our last sunny walk of the summer at Stanwick Lakes.

Sombre blanched faces

hopes dashed and tears shed for our

romantic heroes.
