Annual Conferences and Autumn Meets

All our events are open to non-members and we are delighted to welcome local people to the Annual Conferences. The AGM and annual Conference is in early May. Our meetings include site visits as well as formal lectures.

Following the successful joint excursion with the Cumbrian Vernacular Buildings Group in the summers of 2017 and 2018, a further joint event is planned for summer 2019. Details will be announced on this website later in the spring, and will be emailed to all those members for whom we have accurate addresses.
