Our website team had a table at the Rossington Fun Palace on 1 October, and were based in the library at the Holmescarr Centre, near to the display box which is being maintained by the website team.  Rob Geddes, one of the team, took a collection of his project which documents the 1838 sale of property in Littleworth Lane, and around Rossington.  He was able to explain to visitors about locations and which of the buildings still exist, although refurbished, and who lived in them in 1838.  We also took pieces we were given by Rossington History Group, and a collection of some of our reference books, and Keith Scott loaned us some of his photo albums as he was not able to attend.
