Heritage Society

The Society has grown steadily since the mid 1990’s and is a popular part of Village life with meetings throughout the autumn, winter and spring and members providing enthusiastic and knowledgeable support as volunteers to man the Centre through the summer. Visits to other attractions and heritage walks are often undertaken by members.

All visitors are very welcome to attend our meetings which are held in the Village Hall. Events are advertised on local notice boards, in magazines and the IW County Press.

The Society produces its own publications and these are available for sale through the Centre and local outlets.

There is a small annual membership fee of as little as £5 per annum giving you newsletters and new information and discounted entrance to our meetings. Membership Form
