Activities

The Group is visited by speakers on a varied number of historical topics from local history to wider historical events. Among the topics we have heard so far this year have been the Historical Background to the Islamic State, Heraldry and a History of Brickmaking in the Chilterns. Members at times also share their particular enthusiasms and knowledge by giving short talks to the Group. Not all members want to speak publicly but are ready to comment and ask questions after the talks which adds to the liveliness of meetings.

For further information please contact the Convenor.
