Event Series Event Series: Heritage Open Days

Ancient Tribes, Mystical Vibes and Lygetun (Town of Light). Come along to Marsh House and immerse yourself in the history of this culturally important Luton landmark.

Join us on a journey charting the historical roots of Luton from early life as a Neolithic settlement where the River Lea rises, through centuries of tribal, mystical, archaeological, agricultural and cultural history underpinning the development of our town, our people and our communities.

Marsh House is located close to the source of the River Lea and the scheduled ancient monument, Waulud’s Bank. Originally a farmhouse for Marsh Farm, also known as Ford’s Farm, the building now sits within Leagrave Common, a County Wildlife Site. Since the 1970s the building has cemented its position as an important centre for youth culture in the town.

Attendees on the day will be treated to a series of heritage talks and tours about the house and surrounding area, coordinated by Glenn Jenkins and his associates at Marsh Farm Outreach.

This event has been made possible thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
