Historic visits

There is no limit to the number of people who want to belong to this group: we are circulating details of the visits we are arranging through E-Mail, and anyone who is interested can join us. If you do not have E-Mail, please telephone us and then we’ll keep you up-to-date about the visits. At present, we are confining our visits to places which are within easy reach of Blandford by car; but, as we get more experienced, we’ll be travelling greater distances and using coaches. When we get to that stage we may have to limit the numbers who are going to a particular site; but we’ll deal with that issue when we come to it.


We are offering a varied diet of the places we are arranging to visit, and they range in age from the Prehistoric to the present day, and in type from cathedrals to country cottages; and we are doing our best to “stagger” the type so we won’t be visiting, say, a country house on consecutive occasions.  On many of these visits, we have used a guide to take us around and learned a lot about the place in consequence. We don’t expect to “please all the people all the time”, but we are doing our best!
