EXETER LOCAL HISTORY SOCIETY

 

WELCOME

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.

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.

 

All talks are on the second Thursday of alternate months (February, April, June, August, October & December).                                                           All meetings start at 7 pm and are held at JURYS INN, Western Way, Exeter EX1 2DB.                                                                                 Free parking is available from 6pm in the Triangle Car Park at the rear of Jurys.                                                                                       Walks/visits are usually on the second Thursday of alternate months (January, March, May, July, September November).
