Heritage Open Day

We were delighted to welcome over 100 people to Claremont on Saturday 11th September for the Heritage Open Day. Visitors were able to see a special presentation on the building and the Society, and the improvements we are making to Claremont, and were then taken on guided tours around the building by Mrs Freda Matthews and our President, Mrs. Sylvia Thomas. On display were a number of poster boards depicting the development of the Claremont estate and some of the people involved in the area and the house. Also available were the newly acquired court rolls from Seacroft Manor Court. Visitors were also welcomed by the Thoresby Society, who had displays on the theatres in Leeds.
