Barkestone-le-Vale Family History and Photographic Exhibition, 2012
Interested in people and families in the Vale of Belvoir, or fascinated by investigating family history? This is not to be missed.
Barkestone is only a short drive from nearby Grantham, Melton and Nottingham. The village is on the route of the No.24 bus from Melton to Bottesford, a two-hourly service Monday to Saturday. Trains stop at Bottesford (for Nottingham and Grantham/East Coast Main Line) and Melton (for Leicester/Midlands Main Line and Peterborough/East Coast Main Line). Unfortunately, the village pub has had to close (like so many others these days), but good food can be had in pubs in neighbouring villages.
