Murder at the museum!
The story of an Essex murder and policing in Victorian times
will be revealed at two separate events at Essex Police Museum in
Speaker Martyn Lockwood, a retired Inspector at Essex Police,
will host an interesting evening on the Moat Farm Murder that was
uncovered in Clavering, Essex in 1903 between 7.30pm and 9pm
on November 2.
Retired Sergeant Fred Feather will then give a talk on the
lifestyle of a police officer in the Victorian era on November 10
between 7.30pm and 9pm
Both events will be held at the museum at Essex Police Headquarters
in Springfield, Chelmsford.
Curator Becky Wash says, “The Moat Farm Murder is a fascinating
crime which was significant in the understanding of ballistics and
interesting in the way it was handled in the courts.
“Life in Victorian was very difficult and the conditions of
service Victorian police officers faced was grim! Uniforms were
uncomfortable, shifts were long and punishments were harsh.”
The talks are part of Essex Police Museum’s talks programme
covering a variety of police related subjects including Essex
murders and police memorabilia. Visitors to the talks will
also have the opportunity to view the Essex Police Museum’s
Tickets cost £3 per person and include light refreshments.
