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

January 2021 – Coronavirus (COVID19) Update  Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, and the lockdown restrictions still in place, our AGM has been postponed until later in the year, and our January meeting was held via Zoom.  The current Committee Members are willing to carry on in 2021, and are working on next year’s programme.  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 2021, our regular meetings will be on: 12th January (via Zoom),  9th March (via Zoom), 11th May, 13th July , 14th September and 9th November.  When circumstances permit, we will resume meetings at the Three Horseshoes. 

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.
