D. H. Lawrence Heritage Centre, Mansfield Road, Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, NG16 3DZ
To mark the Centenary celebrations of D.H. Lawrence’s novel ‘Sons and Lovers’ D.H. Lawrence Heritage will be waiving it's normal admission charges. As a boy, the writer D. H. Lawrence would pick up his father's wages from this impressive Victorian building, which was the offices of local coal owners, Barber, Walker & Co, which he re-created in his novel 'Sons and Lovers'. Today the building is a thriving Heritage Centre with information on Victorian life in Eastwood, including a school room and information on the local coal mining industry. There is plenty and see and do for children within the exhibition with interactive activities such as dressing up.
This event took place in September 2013 and the entry is now archived.
