Local History Day 2018

Each year, GLHA organises several Summer events for its members: an afternoon meeting (held in 2019 at Tidenham in west Gloucestershire) and two evening visits.

In 2019 these were an Industrial Heritage walk on Leckhampton Hill and a visit to Brockworth Court and church.

Details of visits for 2020 will be posted on the website’s Events Page in due course.
