Langport & District History Society



Registered Charity No. 1179718

We organise a programme of talks and visits, collect local photographs, research aspects of local history and produce publications of local interest. Visiting speakers are invited to give illustrated talks on subjects of historical interest, either about the local area or more generally. Our talks are held at 7.30pm on the first Monday of the month, excepting Bank Holidays, when we meet a week later. There are no meetings in July and August. Talks are free to members. Non-members are very welcome, £4.00 per talk.

We meet at the Langport & Huish Sports & Social Club, Eastover, Langport TA10 9QN.

Membership costs £15 per annum, which includes all talks and a copy of Level Talk, our annual compilation of local history articles.
