History of The Society.

The Society was formed in 2007, when a group of individuals with similar interests in the local area decided that information on the history and environment was not being shared and recorded.

A small working committee was formed and from the initial meeting it became clear that there were a number of people in Holywell and the district that had been working on their own. These people had varied interests which were not being met in our locality. It was decided to hold a series of talks and lectures by both members of The Society and noted speakers.

The talks are held in Penbryn Chapel, Whitford Street, Holywell on three Saturdays in the spring and three Saturdays in the autumn. The talks are open to non-members at a cost of £3.00 and have proved to be very successful. In addition to talks The Society members visit local places of interest, Mostyn Hall, Basingwerk Abbey, Shrewsbury and Wroxeter.
