Congleton and the Battle of Mons
The Battle of Mons was the first major battle the British army fought in the Great War. The British Expeditionary Force faced overwhelming odds and in later years its success was attributed by some to divine intervention. If you want to know more then come to Congleton Museum on Thursday 27th October, when Linda Hulse will give a talk on the Battle of Mons and some of the men from Congleton who were involved. The talk which will start at 2:00 pm is free to Friends of the Museum; the cost to none members will be £2.
