  • Who lived at Betley Court?

  • Who owned the fields and farms aroundabouts?

  • What did Heighley Castle look like…and The Medicine House?

  • Who was the school’s Headmaster in 1939?

  • Did Betley have evacuees during the wars….and where from?

  • What do we know about The Black Horse … and The Swan…or Betley Post Office?

BLHS members will be there to help guide you to some of the answers.
