The group has ten members and we meet monthly over tea and biscuits in one of the member’s homes for discussion about various aspects of local history. Some members of the group have studied particular topics such as ancient routes; overseer’s accounts; mineral extraction; public transport; North Street buildings and occupations. On an occasional basis we produce a booklet which we offer for sale to U3A members. More recently we have considered the history of local Alms-houses, charities and libraries. We meet on the third Thursday of the month at 9.30 am.
