Welcome to our Winter programme which includes a specially interesting talk from two of our Committee members, David Austin and Tim Mars. Our Christmas visit includes two houses, one, Pitzhanger Manor, a highly praised restoration and the other, Sir John Soane Museum, home to the critically acclaimed Hogarth exhibition.

Following feedback from our members we are experimenting with holding meetings on a Saturday afternoon, so members no longer have to turn out on dark, cold nights. Please let us know what you think even if you can’t come to the talk.

We look forward to seeing you on November 30th when you will be able to enjoy tea or coffee and cake after the talk.

Medieval Gloucester – St Mary de Crypt and Llanthony Priory

July 25, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 4:30 pm

A visit to St Mary de Crypt Church and to Llanthony Secunda Priory:

Many medieval buildings in Gloucester have been given a new lease of life, as a result of an ambitious and far-sighted programme “Achieving Regeneration in the City through Heritage.” A partnership of the City Council and many other groups including Gloucester Civic Trust have carried this forward. The projects have been generously funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Arts Council and other bodies.  Full details are here:  https://us10.campaign-archive.com/?e=&u=5788ebe6ae697ef1409e23f56&id=94d9bb90e2

St Mary de Crypt
We will have a guided tour of this historic church. It has now been transformed into a vibrant community centre and the historic features have been enhanced.
