Local History Talks 2022

'Thank you for tonight's talk. Fascinating! Concise, accurate and left you wanting more, or at least looking at the area in a new way. What could be better?'

'As new members we thoroughly enjoyed the talk and the photographs last night and are looking forward to the next one.'

'An interesting insight not only to the Poor Laws in the 19th century, but also into how historical researchers work and the sources they use.'

'Absolutely fascinating talk, thank you.'

'Thank you! Great maps'

All talks start at 7.30 pm on Zoom, unless we tell you otherwise. We will send you an invitation link.  Details of how to book are here.
