FRIDAY 23rd JULY 2021  11am to 4pm

After what seems a very long time in lockdown, the committee of the AHSIG are pleased to announce the first of what is hoped will be a number of photographic field trips across the country in the coming year.

Attendance is conditional on Government Covid 19 restrictions being lifted as proposed in late June.

 

The village of Stanton Drew is not only is the location of the famous stone circles, but also contains a wealth of other historic buildings, from the Parish Church to the dainty little toll house on the access road to the village. There is much for the photographer to explore.

The plan is to meet up, then split into a couple of smaller groups and explore the sites at staggered times so we don’t crowd out photo opportunities.  This is a publicly accessible site so there may well be other visitors too.  There is a small charge levied by the landowner of £1 to access the stone circle via an honesty box. We will be booking a couple of tables at the Druid Inn, for refreshments at lunch time (to be purchased by attendees).  The food is very good and reasonably priced. If you do book to attend, please let me know if you intend to get lunch at the pub so I can let them know how many meals to expect.

Spaces are limited to 15 paid up group maximum so we do not wish to overwhelm local parking, as this is a small village.  Details of where to meet etc will be emailed to those who book a place.

To book your place please email the group secretary heritagesec@rps.org
