Group Leader: Sally Partington
This group meets on the 2nd Thursday in the month from 2pm - 4pm Northfleet. This year under the umbrella title of “who rules Britain?” we have studied the struggles between Monarchies and Parliament, from the reasons for the removal of Charles I and the establishment of the Republic of Britain under Oliver Cromwell to the restoration of Charles II in fascinating detail. The struggle went on in to the reign of James II after which we studied “The Glorious Revolution” and the emergence of political parties. We are presently studying topics relating to the 18th century".
