Wickham – 2000 years of history in one attractive Hampshire village.
WICKHAM HISTORY SOCIETY is an active and friendly voluntary civic organisation founded in January 1960 that exists to:
|. Gather information about the history of Wickham and help make it available to all who are interested.
. Promote the preservation of old buildings, monuments, records, maps and traditions of Wickham.
. Foster interest in Wickham’s history and historical research through this website and through publications, and by arranging lectures, visits and exhibitions.
We started our 2018-19 season in September with our first talk on Southampton and this month we move to Salisbury.
On Tuesday 23rd October we welcome back Andrew Negus for the second installment on Salisbury – A Tale of Two Cities.
We shall explore Salisbury’s wonderful history and buildings, both in the city and the cathedral. We shall see how most splendour of this was created between 1200 and 1600 by crafty bishops. We shall encounter how a giant, a whiffler, harlots and businessmen helped make the city very wealthy.
Meetings are held at 7.30 pm at the Wickham Centre on the FOURTH Tuesday of the month.
The membership year began in September. The annual fee for those wishing to renew or join is £6pp – fantastic value for NINE meetings!
Visitors are most welcome at £2 per meeting.
