Ledbury & District

Local History

Meetings at 2.00pm (for 2.30pm) on the 3rd Friday of each month, in the hall to the rear of the Baptist Church in Homend, Ledbury

Most months we usually have a speaker, with occasional visits to relevant places of interest.

The last meeting of 2017 was a Quiz & Christmas Social. 2019 started with Richard Simkin talking on The Dymock Poets

Future Programme:

There will not be a meeting on Good Friday.

May 17th - Clive Jupp - What’s so special about the Mortimers?
Clive, a Trustee of the Mortimer History Society, will discuss the warlike, ambitious and powerful Mortimers, who bestrode the medieval stage. Inextricably linked with the great events of their time, their story is the tale of a turbulent England racked with dissension, rebellion and open warfare at home and abroad.

June 21st - Geraldine Woods-Humphery - The Chartists
Geraldine will give a talk about Chartism, the UK reform movement of 1837-48, entitled:- The Politics of Dreams: The Chartists of Lowbands and Snig's End

Members will be contacted in advance by email or telephone, with a reminder of the next meeting.

Although a very large group, there is no limit on numbers and we welcome new members. However, please note that we shall have to refuse entry to the hall once the limit is reached, so please arrive in good time

We look forward to seeing you at the meetings
