A talk
As part of the Heritage Open Days programme, John Mullen will be relating a dramatic tale about a an incident that took place in Browndown (just behind the museum) in 1845. – a duel. Duelling was illegal at the time: one man fled; the other died; a court case ensued and so ended the story of the last Englishman to die on English soil as a result of duelling. An intriguing adventure, vividly brought to life by John Mullen.
