This meeting is very special as it is being held in Berkeley Castle.
Karen Davidson and Peter Yardley will introduce us to the Berkeley Castle estate map collection illustrating the estate through the ages. The originals of these maps are very important historical records and cannot leave the castle. Hence we are going to the castle to see them.
You will be able to see, but not touch, these works of art following the PowerPoint presentation. If you would also like to follow this with an optional tour of the castle you can do this at the cost of £5 per head. We will take bookings a week or so before the event. The presentation will be preceded by a short annual AGM.
It does require a little extra effort on your part to travel to the castle but we can assure you it will be worth the effort. Car pooling will be arranged for those requiring it. This is a unique opportunity to see these maps which are normally secured away from viewing in the castle archives. More details closer to the time.
Annual membership will include online access to all the Society’s records for the calendar year, free entry to all presentation meetings and refreshments afterwards.Join Us Now
