Festivals & Heritage

This exhibition will tell the story of the people that called Nymans their home and how the War affected them. From Ludwig Messel who was deeply saddened by the conflict between the two nations he loved to the soldiers in the Buffs, trained by Ludwig's son Leonard who was unable to join the soldiers on the front line because of his German ancestry. Find out about the letters Leonard received from those who saw combat and why his father Ludwig is said to have died from a broken heart from the conflict.
