Geddington remembers – Queen Eleanor

Geddington has always been known for its many and varied activities within the community. This year has seen very few of them, of course, so here on, we decided to look back at past events and relive some of the finest moments in this village’s history.

What better event than the 700th Anniversary of Queen Eleanor’s resting in the Church of St Mary Magdalene, during her funeral cortage from Lincoln to Westminster Abbey?

6th December 1990 saw a very impressive re-enactment by a large number of village residents, in a very moving pageant.

On 6th December 2020, we will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of that day, by posting the video of that pageant.

It is introduced by the Reverend Richard Dorrington and those of us who were there, will know the truth of Richard’s final words in The Newsletter’s report at the time, when asked what stressed him most: “Having a horse and an archdeacon in the church at the same time!”

So, book your ‘seats’ and be prepared to marvel at the pageant of the century, here on,
on 6th December 2020.
