Local History


Michele Seddon-Harvey

The Local History group aims to explore the long and fascinating history of Monmouth. There is usually a talk from a knowledgeable historian plus a question-and-answer session, followed by a cup of tea or coffee. There are also occasional research/discussion meetings, as well as visits to places of historic interest in the summer.

The annual subscription is £10 a year, and there is a small meeting charge to cover room hire and speaker expenses.

Please contact the convener for further information, or if you would like to join the Local History group.
