Programme for 2021-2*

(*now amended to take account of Covid19)

Our programme has been temporarily suspended but we have a set of speakers booked and some visits planned.  As soon as we can take part in these safely we will be announcing dates and times for these.


Our first online talk will be given by Neil Storey on Tueday March 16th at 7.30pm on War along the Norfolk Coast

and we are running winter walks with Ann Meakin:

a series of history walks using old maps and historical information

During the next few months - weather permitting - Ann Meakin will lead some 'Looking at the Landscape' walks in the countryside around Martham:

Do you ever wonder why certain tracks and paths exist, or how the Enclosure of 1805-12 altered the landscape of Martham?  This is an opportunity to find out.

The walks are limited to five people (plus Ann) each time, and must be booked in advance. They will be between two and three miles in length and we will walk at about two miles an hour. They will start from places where you can park and will begin at 10.30 in the morning.  Sturdy shoes will be needed.

To book your place please email and state your first and second choice of date and give your telephone number.

If you cannot join this walk but may be interested in others, please send Ann your details so that she will be aware of your interest.

Other walks of interest without a guide can be found here which is our history trail, and here, which is a set of historical footpaths complete with photos and description.
