Durrington step back in time at Worthing Library

Durrington step back in time at Worthing Library


Visitors to Worthing Library in January will be able to find out about Durrington’s history.

West Sussex Libraries’ Information Librarian Jane Dore will be hosting a talk about Edwardian Durrington at lunchtime on Tuesday January 6th.

She will reveal details of a research project into the history of Durrington, during a period which saw the opening of the village school, Baptist church, as well as the establishment of several market gardens.

As part of the project, which was supported by National Lottery funding, local volunteers researched the village as well as worked in partnership with local schools to develop learning opportunities based on the research.

Replica costumes were created, practical workshops on photography and cookery, guided tours and numerous events were held as part of this exciting project.

The talk is the latest in a series of free lunchtime lectures at Worthing Library.

It starts at 12.10 pm. There’s no need to book – simply pop along on the day to discover more about daily life in Durrington at the turn of the 20th century.

Worthing Library is in Richmond Road, Worthing.
