About the Society

The Cleobury Mortimer & District History Society was founded in 1981 and exists to promote the study and awareness of the history of Cleobury Mortimer and the surrounding parishes. There are three main areas of activity:

  1. members meet twice a month to work on documents relating to the history of the local area, usually focused on one of two projects. (We are currently working on a record of the Monumental Inscriptions of St Mary’s Church, Neen Savage – with a map of the monuments, and a record of available information on The Changing Face of Cleobury Mortimer High Street)
  2. twice a year, public meetings are organised, at which a lecture on some local history topic is given, generally by an invited speaker;
  3. there is an active publishing programme which has so far included eight volumes of Cleobury Chronicles (articles on local history)

Members also work on areas of their own interest and there are lively discussions at our meetings which take place on the first and third Wednesday evenings of the months September to May, at 7.30 pm in the Parish Hall at Neen Savage (which has ample car arking).

Membership is open to all on payment of an annual subscription of £13.00 for an individual or £20.00 for family membership. The year runs from 1 September to 31st August. Members receive, free of charge, one copy of any publication issued during the year, and notices of meetings etc.
