Activities

Members evenings

These include tours, field trips and lectures on subjects as diverse as ‘Dark Matter’ and ‘The History of Bread making’.

Members Evening 2017 will be held on 27th July and will be a tour of Beauchief Abbey led by Colin Merrony.

Reviews of some of our previous CHS talks can be found on the CHS Blog using the category tab ‘Historical Society talks’.  Photographs and reports of a recent visit to Treak Cliff Cavern in July 2016 and an Aircraft Wrecks walk on 24 May 2014 are displayed on the CHS Blog under the category tab ‘Events’.

On 25 May 2012 CHS members made a field trip to Fountains Abbey, Ripon Minster and the ‘Devil’s Arrows’ menhirs at Boroughbridge.  The trip was led by Colin Merrony of University of Sheffield Archaeology Department who gave an interesting commentary on each place visited and a fascinating insight into the life of a medieval monastery.

Guests are always welcome to attend the lecture evenings.  A charge of £3 includes refreshments.
