History & Archaeology Society

Page updated 28 Oct 2018

History & Archaeology SocietyMeetings are held in the John Corbett Room, Droitwich Community Hall, Heritage Way, Droitwich Spa, starting at 7:30pm.

Our aims are:

  • To provide a focus for interest in the town's past.
  • To educate individuals and groups about local remains of human activity with a view to conservation.
  • To encourage the current level of knowledge through research into local history and fieldwork.

Activities include:

Monthly lecture meetings, occasional visits and tours, guided town walks, monitoring development projects and, where appropriate, comment on those applications which affect local heritage. We publish a twice-yearly newsletter.
