History Group - Programme

Unfortunately, the re-birth of a History Group coincided with the Covid-19 pandemic but it is hoped to re-introduce a programme of events later in 2021.

Previous events have included a guided tour of Abingdon Merchant House, a visit to see the medieval wall paintings in St Peter ad Vincula, South Newington and talks on 'Lost Villages of Oxfordshire', 'Oxfordshire in the Civil Wars' and 'Beer, Sausages and Marmalade: food, drink, politics and tourism in C19 Oxford'.

Future talks may include 'Scandal in High Society, Oxfordshire', and 'Child Labour in C19 Oxfordshire'. Hopefully these will be held in the Merry Bells, but possibly via Zoom.
