Welcome to the website for Tilty Archaeology & Local History Group (TALHG)

November 2020 – Coronavirus (COVID19)  Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, and the lockdown restrictions currently in place, unfortunately there will be no meetings or events for the rest of this year.  The Committee is currently planning next year’s programme.  Our January meeting will be via Zoom, and possibly the March meeting too, and we are also hoping to arrange some local walks for the spring.  We hope to resume General Meetings at our usual venue at the Three Horseshoes as soon as it is safe to do so.

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 Club Room, upstairs at 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 2020, our regular meetings will be on: 14th January (AGM), 10th March, 12th May, 14th July , 8th September and 10th November [cancelled due to Covid-19 pandemic] 

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), Rebecca Fowell (Treasurer), and Alf Wright.
