FERGUSON'S GANG MUSICAL by Martin Coslett
Based on a true story, it begins in the 1920’s when five “flappers” are banqueting at the Dorchester and the news that “Stonehenge is under threat” brings the meal to a sudden halt. The girls were inspired to form the secret... Ferguson’s Gang.
They start a campaign of heritage protection despite the girls experiencing desperate personal problems. In danger were places like the Cornish Coastline, Dovedale in Derbyshire, Newtown Town Hall on the Isle of Wight, Shalford Mill, Steventon and many other beauty spots and ancient buildings.
Huge sums were raised to assist the National Trust in avoiding the tentacles of creeping urban development - as relevant then as it is today.
