Newstead Abbey Workshop
The Slave Trade Legacies family travelled to Newstead once more to participate in our Ancestors voices workshop hosted by University of Nottingham.
The group learnt about the links between Newstead Abbey and the sugar plantations that generated the wealth for the restoration of the Abbey itself by Thomas Wildman. They then went on to thinking about our Ancestors Voices, developing ideas for what should be showcased at Newstead Abbey about our ancestors’ contributions.
