The society is not confined to meetings in Church House, but also arranges visits to local buildings and institutions, many of which are not normally open to the general public. The society also organises trips, at reasonable charges to cover costs, to places of historical interest further afield.

Because of the current Coronavirus situation, we have had to cancel all visits, for the remainder of 2020.  As a substitute, our Programme Secretary has compiled “What We Would Have Seen …” articles about all the year’s planned outings.  You can read them by clicking here.

The timetable below lists those outings that were planned for 2020.  A message from the Programme Secretary concerning this and plans for 2021 can be read by clicking here.
