Since its foundation in 1849 the Society has promoted the preservation, study and enjoyment of archaeology, history and architecture in the historic county of Cheshire and neighbouring areas, and the understanding of these subjects generally. Membership is open to everybody who shares our interests and we welcome enquiries from individual and other societies.
Our activities include monthly lectures from the Autumn to the Spring, Summer excursions on demand, undertaking or encouraging relevant research, campaigning on local heritage issues, publication of an annual journal and a twice-yearly newsletter, and maintenance of our own specialist library.
