About Us

We are a flourishing and vibrant History Society and in 2021 we will be celebrating 25 years from our first lecture in 1996.


We have grown considerably in recent years and our diverse and interesting programme can be seen on this website. We have ten lectures a year, from October to July and at least one trip each Season to somewhere of outstanding and unusual historical interest.

In our Silver Jubilee year, we have plans for a guided walking tour of some of the remaining City of London Wren Churches.  We are also planning guided walking tours of historic Winchester.


In previous years we have visited Wells and Glastonbury, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. In 2019, we enjoyed a guided tour of Prior Park followed by a visit to Bath.
