The Cragg Vale Local History Group was formed in 2008 and we are still going strong. We are an informal, friendly and sociable group and we would love to welcome more people into the group, either as regular attendees or to drop in for individual sessions.

Meetings are at 7.30 pm, on 3rd Thursday each month from September to June. We take a summer break in July and August but try to arrange a visit to an interesting location during the break.

Venue: St John's Church, Cragg Vale. Refreshments are available at each meeting.

Membership: Just £15 for the year or £3 per meeting for visitors. Just turn up on the night.

If you are interested in joining, please just come along to one of our meetings.
