Barnstaple History Group
Welcome to Barnstaple History Group
We are a friendly group of people who have many and varied interests in Barnstaple history. The aim of the group is to establish a more detailed and wider understanding of the history of Barnstaple in terms of:
People who live or have lived here.
Events that have taken place.
The buildings and landscape, both past and present.
We meet on the first Saturday in every month (excluding January) in Barnstaple Library in the Henry Williamson Room, next to the Record Office on the second floor. 2.00-4.00pm
A lift is available for those who find stairs difficult.
We look forward to meeting you!
In March when the country went into lockdown due to the Covid-19 outbreak, Barnstaple History Group, along with many other groups, sadly had to close.
As the year passed we had hoped to be able to restart our meetings, but unfortunately this was not to be as the virus ruled we must be vigilant and not meet up.
There is still no certainty when things will change, but as soon as Government and medical advice allows, we will resume our monthly meetings at The Henry Williamson Room in Barnstaple Library.
In the meantime, our Facebook page is still very active and if you wish to contact the group you can do so via Facebook or click on the link 'Contact Us' on the menu bar at the top of this page.
We look forward to seeing everyone again in 2021.
