About The Group

Always look at Event's listings for current events which may include:

Meetings, Field Trip and Events. We plan to hold various events during the year, visiting a range of heritage locations and archaeological sites in the various parts of the country. Heritage means much more than churches, although the range of photographic opportunities presented leads to churches being popular subjects. We try to identify opportunities to photograph country houses, industrial sites, and village and townscapes amongst others. Ideally locations where photography is not otherwise not permitted and to access some sites when closed to the general public. With a small committee we always welcome suggestions for suitable new venues.

Members' Showcase. Each autumn the Group holds our annual Member's Showcase of members work, in recent years this has been held in Leatherhead, Surrey. Both prints, projected digital, etc.

The meeting is a good introduction to the group. Our members' interests in the photography of archaeology and heritage are wide-ranging; hence showcase is an opportunity for them to share their photographic work, and thus also their interest in their chosen field. Members make their own arrangements for lunch, many congregating in a local pub.

These are friendly events, and newcomers will be made most welcome.

Heritage Photography Journal. Please read here all about our journal which is regularly sent to Group members.

Our Annual General Meeting takes place in March, and is combined with the Annual Print Day, where members share and discuss their print work.
