Excursions and tours

The Society organises a number of Summer Excursions to sites of interest within the region. In most years we also run a four-day residential excursion. In recent years we have visited sites in Lincolnshire and Wales.

In September/October 2017 we will be visiting the Inverness area – see the 4-day excursion programme for details, or contact the treasurer, Roger Bellinger, at

Vacant position on Council

The trustees thank Alistair Graham Kerr for his work organising excursions during the past three years. His resignation means the Society needs someone to arrange excursions for the summer months of 2018. The role will be one of co-ordinator, with other members of Council helping to provide venues and lead tours. Depending on the venue, the role may involve booking the visits, advising on travel, ensuring parking, toilet facilities and refreshments are available; arranging for expert guides if possible, or printing  information sheets, as an ‘added value’ component of the visit; issuing  notices to the membership and advertising excursions on the website and by e-mail. Applications should be sent to the Hon.Gen.Secretary, Edmund Perry at
