Visits, Walks, Shows and Quizzes

Every year the Society usually arranges at least one visit to a place of historical interest and an annual walk .  We also attend various shows in the Ashbourne area and produce quizzes on heritage and local history.

Visits and shows: 

In September 2013 we visited to Diseworth Museum.

In the year 2014/15 we visited the Tower of London to see the ceramic poppy display and also Blenheim Palace.

No walk was held this year.

The Society usually has a stall with a small exhibition at the following summer events around Ashbourne.  Details for the Shows in 2017 will be posted in due course.
