Event description

Description

Visit the (normally locked) graveyard of the Church of the Blessed Virgin in the heart of Lucan village. Let the Society for Old Lucan (SOL) guide you on a short tour, giving you the history of the site. There are two phases of building on this site and we hope to have definitive news on the dates for these two churches for visitors on the tour! Hear also about the history of Lucan demesne and the village, the 18th & 19th century gravestones (including a possible re-used pre-Reformation holy water font) and view images of the interiors of the churches (access is not possible as it is part of the Italian Ambassador's residence) recently captured during our graveyard project survey.
