Exeter Local History Society members are hooked on history. If you share our fascination, why not join us? We have six lecture meetings a year and six guided walks, plus occasional long distance outings, and we cover an incredibly diverse range of subjects from Roman remains to post-WW2 redevelopment.
The charge for each meeting is normally £3 (free to members) and the annual membership fee is £12 (£16 for joint membership). If you sample a meeting and decide to join, the £3 cost will be deducted from your first annual fee. Walks and visits normally cost £3 each for members and visitors.
We also produce six newsletters a year - how about we email you the most recent as a free taster? to request a copy just email ExeterLocalHistory@gmail.com. We hope we will see you soon at one of our events, listed below under "Up and Coming Events".
In the meantime, check out our website and see for yourself the great selection of subjects with which we entertain our members. Just click on "Recent Events" or "Visits & Walks" on the banner at the top of this page to explore our programme history! Click on "How To Join Us" for an application form.
FUTURE EVENTS FOR YOUR DIARY
Wednesday, 14 March 2018 Walk
This illustrated talk by John Allan, the Cathedral’s own archaeologist, tells in great and often amusing detail the history of the cathedral.
John is a great speaker and his skills in providing a high standard of buildings analysis, research and assessment while producing talks that are reliable, well-illustrated, and free from jargon are highly regarded.
The talk is free to members but it is essential to book in advance as just to turn up could mean being refused entry if all the seats have been allocated. To book your place contact:
Non members are welcome. The cost is £3. Book your ticket as above and okay to pay at the door.
For more information our email address is email@example.com
If you want to take historical research further, we recommend you give Exeter Memories a try. Their website has for the last ten years been amassing a wealth of information about Exeter. It is well worth a visit. Just click on this link: www.exetermemories.co.uk.
Another site of interest is http://demolition-exeter.blogspot.co.uk which features fascinating articles on Exeter's lost buildings.
