BLAGDON LOCAL HISTORY SOCIETY
We are looking forward to our next meeting after our summer break of two months. Although we are planning a return to face to face talks in Court Lodge in the future, we are continuing with our Zoom format at the moment. The Society is excited to be planning some local archaeological explorations over the coming months with expert assistance from a surveying team and permission from a local landowner. As the project unfolds, look out for more updates in this magazine and on our website.
Our speaker in October is very experienced in local archaeology, having worked in this field for many years. Teresa Hall is currently involved with 'The Winscombe Project' which she will be explaining on Wednesday 13th October at 7.30pm. Her fascinating research includes using evidence to examine historic settlement patterns of dispersed hamlets and farmsteads and how these developed into what we have today.
