Annual Study Day

Due to the pandemic we have postponed our Annual Study Day until Saturday 12th March 2022, when our theme will be ‘The Mystery and Romance of Buildings’.  The decision was taken with everyone’s welfare in mind.  If you have any questions, please contact us.  Diaries are likely to book up quickly, so please save the date now!

The 2019 Annual Study Day ‘Good Foundations’ on Saturday 19 October 2019 explored the variety of building materials available to builders from the earliest times, how they made the most of them and their impact on the appearance of our towns and villages today.
