Founded in 2007 our main aim is to foster an interest in the local history of our area.
(you can see a more formal declaration of our aims in our Constitution under the"About Us" tab.)
We hold meetings and excursions throughout the year, keeping them as informative and informal as we can, and urging our members to participate and enjoy themselves.
If you wish to learn more about us, why don't you apply to join us and enjoy meeting with others  who
