This is a society for anyone interested in local history, however much of an amateur they may be. We use the work “local” in a very wide sense! We meet at 7.30pm in the Village Hall, on the first Wed. of each month, except during July and August.
Our normal meeting takes the form of a talk by a local expert, on a variety of subjects, from the servant situation at North Wales country houses, to the story of a WW2 flying ace. There is plenty of time for refreshments and socialising afterwards.
We also have many trips to local places of historic interest, e.g. Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool and country houses not normally open to the public. We also take part in Cheshire-wide initiatives e.g. the recent Heritage weekend, when we manned Backford Church and also conducted a walking tour of Old Mollington Village. From time to time we have a social event- this year it was a Quiz Night on 27 Oct.
Some of our members have conducted local research and we have published two books about the area of the 5 villages. If you are interested in matters historical, even at a very superficial level, then it would be very nice to hear from you. Contact nos. as given, or just turn up at one of our monthly meetings.
