The Dejardin Lecture
An illustrated talk presented by Jean Townsend . This talk will trace the journey of a 15th Century pilgrim, from the steps of Lincoln Cathedral to Jerusalem itself.

The Church in Kirton in Lindsey
Laurence Dejardin was a founder member of the Kirton in Lindsey Society and an excellent local historian, expert on St. Andrew’s Church and a local artist. ‘The Church in Kirton in Lindsey’ took six years to research and write from 1986 to 1992. It provides us with the most comprehensive history of the development of religion in the town and is a fitting testament to Laurence’s personal interest in the church and his diligence as a researcher.
It was first published in 1993 but has been out of print for many years. This edition has been reformatted and published with many additional illustrations and the story brought up to date.

- Holding public meetings and lectures, arranging tours, organising courses and conferences, publishing (or assisting in publishing) various guides, pamphlets and books about our local area.
- Joining with other like-minded organisations in larger schemes.
- Exploring and recording sites of archaeological and historical interest in conjunction with professionals.
- Helping to safeguard such sites and any other material against destruction or dispersal, and encourage its availability for study.
- Securing the preservation, protection, development and improvement of features of historic, natural or public interest in the area.
