Celebrating the Town’s Past
The Aylsham Local History Society began in June 1984 through the enthusiasm of a group of local people with an interest in the history of this wonderful Norfolk market town. The Society arranges a diverse programme of lectures, visits and social events.
A series of monthly evening lectures is held during the winter months with afternoon lectures during the summmer months.
Several excursions are made to augment the lectures and to visit places of historical interest. Members are also invited to a Social Event each Spring.
A Journal & Newsletter is issued three times a year to members, summarising the lectures and excursions.
By courtesy of the Aylsham Town Council members can also undertake research using the Aylsham Town Archive. Help can be obtained with the guidance of a dedicated group of volunteers led by Maggie Vaughan-Lewis, Hon. Archivist. The Aylsham Archive, has a wonderful collection of printed material and photographs spanning over 200 years. The Archive is usually open each Wednesday from 10.00am – noon – but please check with the Council office first.
The annual subscription, which includes copies of the Journal & Newsletter, is currently £10.00 for individuals and £15.00 for couples.
