As usual at Coling, Wednesday 20th August will be excursion day. The day will start with a visit to a trip to Tatton Park,
with its 18th-century Mansion House, Edwardian gardens, Tudor Old Hall, and 1,000-acre deer park.
After lunch we will make the short trip to the historic town of
Chester, famous for its Roman ruins, Elizabethan two-tiered arcades, its complete city walls, the Eastgate clocktower, and plenty of other attractions.
Another event to look forward to is a reception at Manchester's gothic
Town Hall on Tuesday 19th August.
And no Coling would be complete without the banquet, to be held at the impressive Palace Hotel, a historical grade II listed building, on Thursday 21st August.
