There is no lecture in December but you can read a very interesting article by Helen Morgan about Kelmscott Manor on the This Month page. Then you could plan which other trips you want to go on in 2019 by checking out the Visits page.

The current exhibition at Abergavenny Museum “The Great War: Britain's Efforts and Ideals is a striking set of prints, also being shown Chepstow Museum, commissioned by the British Government in 1917 as propaganda. Designed in two sets of portfolios, “Ideals” and “Efforts” the ideals addressed the reasons why Britain was at war and what it aimed to achieve. These images are dramatic and symbolic and use historical and mythological figures to express ideas.   Well worth a visit.

Our latest publication: Abergavenny Old Hereford Road Cemetery, Database of Burials and Headstones 1855-1938 is now available. For details see the Books and Leaflets page.
