The Hind family home was Edwalton Hall and members of the family were solicitors in Nottingham. They were a very philanthropic family and when Jesse Hind's son Monty was killed in WW1, he bought land in Kinoulton and created the famous Vimy Ridge farm. There is a plaque next to the canal in Kinoulton telling this story. Gary will tell us more about the family and their other acts of philanthropy.
