Habblesthorpe – The Lost Village With Baptist History We explore the lost Nottinghamshire village of Habblesthorpe and its links to the early Baptists. We discover tress, bushes and some graves, plus links to Baptist founders John Smyth and Thomas Helwys from the early 1600s.
Littleborough. Romans, Kings & Saints Littleborough is a small Nottinghamshire village with a remarkable history stretching back 2000 years. In this tour, local historian Adrian Gray explores the village’s hidden past – from early Roman times to present day. We follow in the footsteps of Kings, Saints and Christians who came to this place on the banks of the River Trent.
The Nottinghamshire Prophetess (1641) In 1641, two young women died suddenly after a wedding – but one came back from the dead, prophesying terrible things if England did not repent. Then, a few days later, she died again. Historian Adrian Gray investigates this bizarre story from a turbulent era.
The Battling Puritan – Richard Bernard Richard Bernard was a puritan nonconformist, sometime a separatist, who battled away against the Church authorities in early 1600s England. He knew the Mayflower Pilgrim leaders, the men who began the English Baptist Church, was the father in law of Roger Williams of Rhode Island and probably influenced John Bunyan. Adrian Gray tells his life story.
