Meetings 2017

Our meetings are held generally in Martock on the fourth Tuesday of the month.

Tuesday 26 September

“Out of the mouth of the Parrett”, a fantastic new film made this year to celebrate the river which shapes so many lives. It has some wonderful filmography and interviews many people including Mandy and Marta at the Parrett Works. The film makers have offered to come and introduce and show us the film.


Tuesday 17 October ( a week earlier than usual due to half term )

The colourful Alyce Cleve comes to describe her life journey to become a 16th century kitchen maid. She makes a colourful, dramatic and historically accurate performance.

Tuesday 28 November

The Postal System of Great Britain from mediaeval times up until 1840, by Roger Marsh. He has talked to us before about railways around Yeovil, knows his stuff and speaks and explains well. In Martock we still have our Post Office next to Martock’s main post horse and victualling station, the White Hart, with a big curved window to watch the mail horses coming.
