The first talk of 2018 will be from Peter Stanier, looking at Limekilns.
The L&D History Society organise a programme of talks and visits, mount exhibitions and do research into local history. They have a digital photograph collection, which in 2013 was published in a book, called "Langport & Huish Episcopi through time", available from their 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.
Talks are held in Langport Library, Whatley, Langport starting at 7.30pm on the first Monday of the month, excepting Bank Holidays, when they meet a week later. There are no meetings in July and August. Refreshments are available at the end of each meeting.
Talks are free to members. Non-members are very welcome, £2.00 per talk. Please see website for their talks programme.
