Join Heritage Lincolnshire’s Gary Taylor to explore how Lincolnshire and its people played their part in this momentous battle. 

A FREE one session course on Thursday 5 March from 6:30 to 9:30 PM at the Old School, Cameron Street, Heckington NG34 9RW. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided.

The battle of Arnhem and Oosterbeek, known as Operation ‘Market Garden’, in September 1944, remains one of the most dramatic and controversial episodes of World War 2. The largest airborne operation in the history of warfare, it was a daring plan to establish a route through Holland and into Germany, and was aimed at bringing the war to an early end.

Many of the airborne troops were stationed in Lincolnshire and the surrounding areas prior to the battle and were also transported from local airfields to the battle zone.

Various commemorative monuments and other sites around the county and nearby relate to and provide testimony of the troops who were stationed, and flew from, here.

This talk will outline the battle of Arnhem–Oosterbeek and look at memorials and other traces of it to be found in Lincolnshire and adjacent areas.

Booking is essential.  For an enrolment form please contact htladmin@lincsheritage.org or telephone on 01529 461499.

Easter Dragon Egg Hunt at Bolingbroke Castle
Explore nooks, crannies and hidey-holes to help us find the dragon's eggs at Bolingbroke Castle on March 30th 12-4pm. 50p

01529 461499

Come along to the castle of Bolingbroke 

Where a dragon once reigned, such bad luck!
Her wings were so wide that the sky turned black
The villagers thought they were under attack.

"Here be dragons" the villagers cried
They locked their doors and stayed inside
They didn't know the dragon was building a nest
The stones from castle walls always made the best

She hid her eggs so they were safe and sound
But now they're nowhere to be found!
You'll need to use your eyes and legs
To help us find the dragon's eggs
