The Wychwoods Local History Society

40th Anniversary Year

The Wychwoods Local History Society has been serving the interests of local history in the Wychwood area continuously for over 40 years. It was founded by residents of local villages in 1981 and meets once a month from September through to May with nine evening talks. Here is our current programme 2021-2022
