Joseph Arch, The man and his legacy with Barford Heritage Group

Date: 26th May 2018

Joseph Arch – The Man and his Legacy. 

The event will be supported by the Barford Heritage Group.

Joseph Arch was a Barford man who came to prominence when he held a meeting in Chestnut Square, in 1872, with the local farm workers to form a union, which eventually became what we know today as the NFU, and to improve the wages of the workers. He later went on to become an MP. He is buried at Barford. 

Learn about this fascinating man and the attempts by the landed gentry to thwart the meeting. 

Guided tours, the mouse trail, films and refreshments in the café along with gifts / souvenirs will also be available.
