  • EC&W Course Annual Day Out 2018: Great Holland Hall

    AAfter a great lunch at the Red Lion at Kirby le Soken, we headed south to Great Holland Hall where our tutor Roger Tabor talked about the buildings, & former farmer Charles Hick's C19 diary which covered the era of the 1930 "Swing Riots" which involved Gt & L Holland & Kirby le Soken as well as other places across the S & E. Threshing machines were destroyed as a reaction to mechanisation & a number of factors affecting agricultural workers livelyhoods. The Hall was also subsequently significant for Mr Hick's daughter in law Lilian Hicks b 1853 & her daughter Amy b 1877 were active in Women's Suffrage.
