About us

The Group was established in December 2011.  We are based in Tilty, in north west Essex, but our members come from several neighbouring villages, and from further afield.  Our principal aim is ‘to acknowledge and encourage people’s interest in the archaeology and local history of Tilty and the surrounding area’.

Regular meetings are held in the Upstairs Room of the Three Horseshoes in Duton Hill.  These meetings are open to members and non-members, but there is a small fee for non-members.  We usually meet on the second Tuesday of the month – but not every month – and the meetings start at 7.45 for 8.00 p.m.

For 2016, our regular meetings will be on: 12th January (AGM), 8th March, 10th May, 12th July, 13th September and 8th November

The Group elects a Committee and Voluntary Officers at the AGM each year – current members are:  Jane and Martin Pedley (Joint Presidents), Darren Stone (Chairman), Maggie Stevens (Secretary), Fiona Down (Treasurer), Nicola Longman (Membership Secretary), Alf Wright, and Rebecca Fowell.
