The Morwenstow Society

Preserving the past and the present for the future.

We are a small and friendly group who meet on the third Friday of each month from September to May.

We have speakers and outings covering varied and fascinating topics from history to flora and fauna. We also preserve and protect documents, maps and photographs etc of local interest in our archive.

Our current programme is attached for you to get a flavour of our meetings.

Visitors are more than welcome. Please contact or the Secretary on 01288 331363 for further information.
