EXCITING PROJECT: Author hosts talk delving into Kings Langley’s fascinating history

 Published on: 8th January 2023   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

An author from Kings Langley entertained residents as he gave a talk on the village’s extraordinary royal history.

Scott Hastie, a poet from the village, gave a talk titled An Evening with Scott Hastie – Palace, Poetry and Extraordinary Kings Langley, at Kings Langley Community Library at the end of last year.

The talk was held in conjunction with the Kings Langley Local History & Museum Society and introduced by joint chair Richard Garnett Harper.

As part of the talk, Scott revealed a number of top secret projects to do with the village’s history that he had been working on, including an investigation into the identity of the third body in the tomb of Edmund de Langley at All Saints Church.

Speaking to KingsNews about the talk, Scott said there is a clear interest in the village’s history as shown by the attendance at the talk.

He said: “It’s exciting. Everything we’ve been working on was launched at the talk. It was a full house at the library. There was ridiculous demand and a long waiting list.”

A video of the lecture and following discussion will be shared on the Kings Langley Matters Facebook group to allow anyone who missed the talk to find out more.
