The aim of our Society is to promote an interest in history, covering both local and general historical topics.
Currently we have around 120 members and typically hold nine meetings a year. Our speakers have educated and entertained us with a lively and impressive variety of talks over the years, ranging from buildings to battlefields, Romans to railways, medieval manners to maps, studies of notable individuals and histories of subjects such as the House of Lords, the English language, gardens, gypsies, domestic lighting and ladies’ underwear. There are plenty more to come.
We have also organised tours to places of historical interest and aim to encourage historical research and publication.
