Banbury talk by HS2 archeologist is cancelled
A talk in Banbury by a senior archeologist leading a team excavating the HS2 route has been postponed.
The lecture to Banbury Historical Society by Dr Helen J Wass next Thursday, November 14 has had to be withdrawn because of the forthcoming general election.
Deborah Hayter of the Society said: "Our speaker Helen Wass has just confirmed that the General Election has put HS2 and all its works as a publicly-funded body into 'purdah' and she is not allowed to come and speak to us."
If the lecture is reorganised, its new date will be publicised by the Banbury Guardian.
