History Society

The Langport & District History Society organises a programme of talks and visits, mount exhibitions and does research into local history.

It has a digital photograph collection, which in 2013 was published in a book, called "Langport & Huish Episcopi through time", available from the Secretary (Sue Standen on 01458 273471). An annual compilation of articles on Local History, called "Level Talk" is free to members. Visiting speakers are invited to give illustrated talks on subjects of historical interest, either about the local area or more generally. The talks are held in Langport Library, Whatley, Langport starting at 7.30pm on the first Monday of the month, excepting Bank Holidays, when it meets a week later. There are no meetings in July and August. Talks are free to members. Non-members are very welcome, £2.00 per talk.
