Onward to Derby ...
After Victory at Prestonpans The 'Dream' Moves to Derby

The Trustees of the Heritage Trust are intent upon making that same journey this coming December, and having the same debate. The Library of Exeter House where the Prince's fateful meeting took place has been reserved. Do we go forward or not?
