Project ID869
DescriptionThrapston & District U3A in North Northamptonshire partnered with Lyveden National Trust for a project aimed at providing clear, detailed reference files that the National Trust could consider when creating future information boards, leaflets or guidebooks. The team made up of three U3A members, three National Trust volunteers and two who are members of both, started last year, by researching Meriel, Lady Tresham who resided at Lyveden Manor. The team researched many aspects of her life and where possible, either attached Primary Sources to the research (if they were available), or labelled the research as being word of mouth hearsay.
