The new exhibition for this year tells the story of five of the many old houses still surviving in this small town, the earliest being built from about 1450 and the most recent built about 1735. Architectural information has been obtained from Castle Donington An Historic Buildings Appraisal 2000. We have looked to see who has lived in them over the years and there are Wills and Inventories of some of the people from times past. Meet some of the people from these houses long ago, the lives they led and some of the quarrels they had – the yeomen, the gentlemen, the basket maker and the Quaker lady.
