Mark Mitchels will speak on ‘The Lost City of Dunwich’

 

No one can stand on the cliffs of Dunwich and not wonder about the city which is now more than a mile out below the North Sea. At the time of Domesday Book Dunwich was spoken of as the tenth largest city in England. Since it began to crumble and fall into the waves, the Lost City has engrossed both historians and visitors. This talk describes the story of a city as fascinating and elusive as El Dorado – and just as exciting. The rise and fall of any human creation speaks to all of us in a common language, because it calls upon our shared fears, but the decline of Dunwich assumes an almost Biblical dimension in that it truly demonstrates that Pride does indeed come before a Fall. And still the North Sea advances, grasping the retreating land.   

 

All welcome.  Doors open at 7pm
