If you have an interest in local history then why not come along to our regular monthly meetings? We have a range of speakers on topics that generally have a bias towards Sheringham, North Norfolk or Norfolk county. For example subjects such as Repton and Sheringham Park, Early Man in North Norfolk and Norfolk and the Titanic Sinking have all been covered recently.
Meetings are on the first Wednesday of most months, normally starting at 7.00. with tea or coffee.
In addition to meetings at the Museum, the group also holds a December social event whilst in July the meet consists of a visit to a local site of historic interest. In July 2020 the visit will be to the Gunton Park water powered sawmill.
This Group started as part of the Preservation Society, chaired by Mike Felmingham which was responsible for the ‘Heritage Walk’ and Blue Plaques around the town.
For the past few years , under the guidance of Hugh Bradbury, the SHG has met at the Sheringham Museum at the Mo, on the seafront.
Everyone is welcome, local residents and visitors to Sheringham alike.
Information about forthcoming topics and speakers can be found on the EVENTS page.
Our next event takes place on Wednesday 5th February 2020. David Stannard give a talk entitled “Spoyl’d by the Rage of the Sea”. The talk will cover a brief history of North Sea storms.
