REDLYNCH & DISTRICT LOCAL HISTORY SOCIETY
The Society was founded in 1996 by Pat Millington to promote interest in local history in Redlynch and its surrounding villages. It has monthly meetings with speakers on a wide variety of topics. These meetings are held 7.30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month at Morgan's Vale and Woodfalls village hall. The Society also arranges a local visit for its June meeting. In addition the Society undertakes a variety of local projects. The most recent involved recording the gravestones in St Mary’s churchyard (see below). Also the Society holds an Annual Exhibition when its resources are put on display and made available to anyone interested in our local history. In 2016 the theme was ‘Redlynch – the Past 20 Years’ to link with our 20th anniversary. (click here for report).
Please visit The News Forest Remembers website. The Society has been closely involved and produced one of the panels which depicts Redlynch during World War I and some of the men who served or died.
Finally the Society actively supports other local organisations, such as its two churches and two halls, by mounting exhibitions and displays. Click the image above left to view the Society's Redlynch Trail. For more information about the Society visit its own website:
