The High Country History Group, covering the small parishes of Greensted, Stanford Rivers, Stapleford Tawney and Theydon Mount has a new blogspot. The Group meets on most fourth Thursdays in the month at Toot Hill Village Hall. This year it has changed its meetings to March to November (except August and September) rather than through the winter months.
For a membership of £7.00, or £10.00 for family members, those on our list receive four journals a year containing items of local and countywide historic and social interest and reduced admission to our regular meetings (£1, instead of £3 for visitors). Do join us. You will be very welcome.
