Welcome

We exist to promote understanding and appreciation of archaeology, history and architecture in the historic county of Cheshire plus neighbouring areas and of these subjects generally. 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.
