History Group

Plaxtol Local History Group aims to help us all to understand and enjoy aspects of our village and parish history and that of the surrounding areas – from the houses and the architecture to the people, their livelihoods and the landscape. We do this through our talks, special projects, publications and occasional exhibitions. Each year we have a programme of monthly talks – when members and non-members are welcome – plus visits to places of interest.

We also aim to spread the knowledge of Plaxtol’s fascinating past by researching its history and publishing the results. You can buy our publications and other items – for details, please see our own publications page

We embrace the past with enthusiasm. Surrounded as we are by change and development, local history gives us all an understanding and enjoyment of what our part of the world used to be like and how and why it has come to be the place we live in today.
