The Remarkable Life of Thomas Fowell Buxton


Another chance to hear Dr Alison Dow bring to life the story behind this plaque and to share some new material. Alison will look at the life of Thomas Buxton and the Norfolk and Norwich community that inspired him and supported him though the brutal, decades-long Parliamentary battle that led finally to the end of slavery throughout the British Empire.

Dr Alison Dow was formerly a GP in Mile Cross, Norwich. She was born and brought up in Northern Rhodesia—now Zambia and is happy to play her part by researching the life of this local historical figure whose role in history has been much overlooked.
