The Society was founded in 1996 by Pat Millington to promote interest in local history in the Parish of Redlynch.  There are monthly meetings with speakers talking on a wide variety of topics to cater for all interests.  The meetings are held at 7.30 pm on the first Tuesday of each month at Morgan’s Vale and Woodfalls village hall.  The Society arranges a local visit for its June meeting.  There is also an Annual Exhibition when its resources are put on display and made available to anyone interested in our local history.

If you would like to contact us, please use this form , or speak to one of the committee members at any of our monthly meetings.

Finally the Society actively supports other local organisations, such as its two churches and two halls by mounting exhibitions and displays.
