Heart of the South Hams, Devon

Welcome to Malborough History Group

The History Group has been running for over ten years and is a small but very friendly group. We found that most people simply could not fit monthly meetings into their busy lives and so we meet four times a year. Our meetings are on the first Wednesday in February, April, June and October. This arrangement seems to suit everyone. 

There is a £7 annual membership fee which entitles you to free entry at all four meetings. Non-members are also very welcome at our meetings and are asked to pay £3 per head.  Both include refreshments afterwards.  (There may be an additional fee if we visit an outside venue in June with charges for entry, guide, etc.)

Our meetings start at 7.30 pm, in Malborough Baptist Church, when we have a speaker followed by refreshments and a chat.

The June meetings are our ‘outdoor meetings’ when we try to do something out of doors or visit somewhere of interest.

We have a small committee of Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary but we welcome volunteers to help with special projects.  If you would like to help or have ideas for new projects, please contact one of the committee members (see below).

Our first meeting in 2017 in February featured conservation architect Linda Watson talking to us about "Devon Cob - A Living Tradition".  

Our April meeting was Colin Vosper on"Kelly 'Shiny Ore' Mine", which was followed up with a visit to the mine near Lustleigh on 7 June.  

In October, Chris Robinson talked to us about "Plymouth in the Blitz".

For detailed reports on previous meetings, see our 'Meetings Reports' section.
