Both Cubs pack visited the Old Meeting House and were treated to a fascinating tour of the building and a very interesting talk about the Meeting House and the history of Bedworth. Nicholas who is one of our Cubs wrote this report for us.
When I went to the Old Meeting House I heard about a person called Julius Saunders. He helped to found the Old Meeting Church with some other people called the Tops. The Topps made pipes for the organ and tin bottles for the miners. The church is nearly 300 years old. It was built in 1726.
I also learned about the chained bibles. They were chained to stop people from robbing them. The bibles are really old, about 300 years. It was so amazing that I want to learn more about the Old Meeting Hall. The stairs to the balcony were quite scary with the swirly bit going around and around.
Thanks to Mrs Burton for telling us all about this & Akela Maxine for arranging the visit. The Old Meeting also had a 100 years titanic expedition. If you want to find out how did it get there and where it is search on line it may look like a normal church but it holds many many secrets
