Visits & Open Days

The Society is an entirely voluntary organisation and regrettably cannot provide a research service. You are encouraged, however, to visit the History Centre, during normal opening hours, where help and guidance can be provided. Please note that the Centre welcomes everybody, but we do ask people not to bring babies or animals, while children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
