The Local History Group meets on the second Monday of each month (except for August) at 7 Grove Street at 10.00am for a 10.30 start. Coffee and biscuits are available beforehand. We each pay £10 per year to cover the cost of hiring the room, coffee etc, stationery and gifts for visiting speakers.
We cover different topics each year or part year and encourage members to give talks. In recent years we have looked at aspects of the Kennet and Avon canal, with emphasis on the section from Bath to Bradford-on-Avon (talks on the history, economics, technology, buildings, a walk along the canal in Bath, a visit to Bradford-on-Avon and a boat trip along the canal); we have also considered architects and their buildings in Bath, working from a list proposed by one of our members.
