Talks and Presentations for 2022

On Monday 17th January at 7.30pm at Church House, Alan Stone will be telling us about Glastonbury Abbey.  After studying economic and social history, Alan worked in sales and marketing to farmers and rural businesses in Somerset and the West Country. He is the author of numerous books on local history and rural topics including Somerset cider, the social history of a Victorian rural postman and the visible history of Shepton Mallet. His previous talks to the group have been on cider and the life of Silas the rural postman. It will be a great evening as Alan is a fascinating speaker with a distinctive style and he has promised to dress up in period costume! 

On Monday 21st February, Nathalie Hetherington will be giving a talk entitled: Tattle Hall: 18th century Milborne Port life through the letters of Thomas Medlycott.

On Monday 21st March, Ted Udall will be giving a talk intriguingly entitled, ‘How Did They Get There?’

On Easter Monday (18th April), we will be conducting a guided walk, possibly around the parish boundaries of the village. For those who would prefer a shorter walk, there will be a guided tour of the area round Church Street at 7pm. Weather permitting for both options, of course!

Later in the year there will be talks on St John’s Church, Newtown, Sherborne Abbey and many more interesting subjects.

There will be more information on all of these nearer the time.
