Our Gloucestershire lecture programme for 2018-19 is now finished. The programme for 2019-20, when lectures will again take place in Churchdown, will be published in late summer.
Our Library is on the move again and will be unavailable from the end of March until the start of the new academic year. If you want to make use of it before it closes, please make an appointment as soon as possible.
Mark Horton will lead a guided tour of Kingswood in the morning, followed by a visit to Wotton-under-Edge Museum and Heritage Centre and a walking tour of the town in the afternoon. Morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided.
A lot has happened in Gloucester since our last Meeting there in 1989, and our President is keen for members to visit Blackfriar's Priory and Llanthony Secunda Priory, both of which have undergone extensive renovations in recent years. Their buildings have been brought back into daily use and are key attractions in Gloucester's rich heritage. As we walk between the two we shall also learn about the archaeological finds on the Gloucester Castle site.
There will, of course, be refreshments too. Full details will be provided to members with the autumn newsletter.
