TTL Housing Group has contributed our ideas to the Heritage Foundation on sustainable housing for Letchworth. Some of us have got interested in visiting Hockerton Housing Project, a sustainable housing project. You can see more about it on their website.
We know the journey by road is about 2 hours by car; a bit north east from Nottingham. We have booked a tour on Saturday 27 June at 2pm. The three hour tour will be £20 per person (waged) or £15 (low waged or student rate.
In good Transition tradition, we hope that TTLers will fill cars for a day out or make best use of the fuel used to stay over to explore the area. There’s Southwell Minster, a very fine very early and unspoilt church in a quaint town of Southwell. Just down the road is the National Trust’s chillingly preserved workhouse. The Derbyshire Dales aren’t far and on line you will find lots else to make a weekend of it. Some of us will be camping and caravanning. Look at your diary… show your interest by sending us an email at TTLetchworth@gmail.com and marking it for attention of Sue.
