The Society holds a regular programme of talks at 7.30pm on the last Wednesday of each month, from September to April, at West Harptree Village Hall, BS40 6EB. They feature speakers on a wide range of historical subjects and are an opportunity to meet other members and join in discussions. During the summer months of May to July we have half day or evening visits to places of interest. See Programme of Events.

The Society’s Research Group works on joint projects which have included documentary research, archaeological field work, geophysical surveys and the recording of oral histories. Local maps have been digitized and we have collected a large photographic archive. Members work with other neighbouring history groups and have taken part in training courses to increase skills. We have held a number of exhibitions and produce a range of publications.
