A Conversation with Ickworth : Researching Ickworth and the First World War

Our first trial of the "Conversation with Ickworth" panel idea, the topic was Researching Ickworth and the First World War. Our panel comprised of Peter McGee, the volunteer who led this research stream, Iris Taylor, who also volunteers in the research team and Chloe Woodrow, Assistant House Manager. The Chair was Graham Parker, an ‘Exemplar Champion’ volunteer who has trialled the other ‘people phase’ concepts as well as being a member of the research team.
