The Society normally meets at 7:30pm for 8:00pm start at the Crowborough Community Centre, Pine Grove on the first Tuesday of each month for lectures and discussion. The next meeting is on 6th Sep 2016 when the subject is
Birds, Beasts and Bacchanalia
by Chris McCooey

Back by popular request, this lively speaker talks about a range of creatures and humans, with delicate and indelicate histories.


In addition to the regular monthy meetings there are two additional events in September
  • Dr Graham Mayhew, the Mayor of Lewes, has invited members of the Crowborough and District Historical Society to visit Lewes Town Hall, where he would like us to take tea with him and he will be able to show us many interesting artefacts which are not on public display. This will take place on Monday 19th September at 2.30. We can travel down by bus as the Town hall is on the 29 bus route, or you may of course travel there by car.
  • There will be a walk led by Jenny Scott for members of Crowborough & District Historical Society, on Ashdown Forest on Saturday 24th September 2016. We will meet at The Hollies car park, opposite Ellisonís Ponds car park, (on the Nutley road) at 10.30am. We will walk towards Friendís clump and Nutley Windmill, across the road and down to the Airmanís Grave (the memorial to the crew of a WWII plane) and on to Fairwarp where we can have lunch at the Foresterís Arms. Back after that to the Hollies car park. About 4 miles, some very uneven ground and steep slopes but very attractive scenery to make up for it!
Please let Jenny Scott know if you intend to join these events
