Summer Heritage Visits

From time to time, when the weather is nicer, the society will arrange excursions to see local heritage sites. These are normally conducted during an afternoon or evening at the weekend and are about two hours long. As well as visiting the historic site these are social events, with a leasurely walk through the countryside and often finish at a country inn.

Where possible the vists are 'guided' by someone with knowledge of the site who can point out the important features and history.

As these visits are often to places off the beaten track, transport may be required and strong boots are advised, as some of the places require some walking over rough ground.
