Topical Issues

At our next meeting on Wednesday 10th July at 2pm - Historian Chris Donaldson will be talking about his work with Ordnance Survey Name Books. How did the names we find on Ordnance Survey maps get there? Who was it who chose those names? What do those names reveal about the history of the places they describe? What, by the same token, do those names conceal? Hopefully he will give us answers to these questions and more.

Several of our Interest Groups will be taking breaks over the Summer. Please see individual group pages for information.

PLEASE NOTE more details for all events shown on the calendar eg venues and times etc can be found on the individual interest group page.
