Hemyock History Group
Meetings are held in the Church Rooms, on the 2nd Thursday in the month, and start at 7:30pm.
We also have all the archives stored in a database with key word catalogue access . Weekend Open Days are organised from time to time at various locations accross the Blackdowns. We have a new web site storing all types of media of the Blackdown Hills area. Please look at:
The development of this web site and the expansion of the Archive activity plus the Open Days have been made possible with a grant from the Making it Local fund and the AONB office in Hemyock.
You can see the calendar on this site to see what is planned for future meetings.
This weekend, the 13th and 14th August, will see the next Open Days for the Community Archives at the Healthy Living Centre. The Archives will be on display at the Centre from 12 noon until 3pm on both Saturday and Sunday. Come along to the Centre this weekend for a relaxing trawl through the Archives that we have assembled over the last 3 years. We now have over 3,050 images stored in a database with keyword access. The images can be expanded and improved and, with approval, printed.
The June meeting at the Church Rooms on 10th June at 7.30pm will be a talk on Nynehead Court, the Sanfords and the Canal given by Denis Dodds.
The April meeting was an informative talk with slide illustrations on the subject of Pub Signs, given by Mr Musgrave of Walton. Their historical origin even reached back into Roman History where the Red Post and White Post Inn signs originated as Roman road signs.
The talk on the 8th April will be given by Bob Musgrove on the story behind Inn Signs and the talk on 13th May by David Greenfield on Brunel's work in the SW.
On 11th February Ron White spoke on "In and Out of Africa". He outlined the work he was doing with Scripture Union of Uganda, from 1971, to further daily Bible Reading and encourage Christian Union groups in secondary schools by visits and conferences. He expected this to last for about five years, but before two years were up he was visited by Idi Amin's men, one Monday morning, who said they were deporting him. Ron conjectured on the reasons why this might have been. He was held overnight in the Central Police Station and served steak and chips! His wife, Val, was able to visit and encourage him. She then joined him with their two daughters on the flight home, having been escorted to the airport by John Sentamu, now the Archbishop of York.
