Membership - How to Join the A&H Group

The A&H Group includes a wide variety of heritage interests and activities. These cover all aspects of history, and range from archaeological discoveries to the present century, including the photography of buildings, artefacts, transport, militaria and industrial heritage. The Group programme includes visits to places of historical interest, and lectures on relevant topics and techniques. A periodical Exhibition of Members’ prints is displayed at appropriate venues, and a regular newsletter, Heritage Photography, is mailed to all Members – sample copies, a Programme of Events, and full details of the Group’s activities may be obtained from our Secretary.
