Rolleston History Group – talk on Mosley Estate – 26th October 2019

The Parish Council have been made aware of the following talk and thought the residents of the Parish would like details, see below:



Saturday 26th October, 9.30 am – 12.30 pm

On the 22nd and 23rd October 1919, in the Co-Operative Hall, Byrkley Street, Burton upon Trent, the feudal Mosley estate, consisting of most of Rolleston and Anslow and parts of Tutbury, was to be sold by auction.

Much of the rural estate transferred to private hands overnight but the sale of the village and Hall dragged on for three more sales leading up to the demolition of the Hall in 1925

The History Friends will tell the story of those sales and also look at members of the Mosley family around that time.
