The Society was formed in 1971 with the aim of monitoring the care and preservation of buildings of historic and architectural interest within the designated conservation area and its surroundings, and to oppose any unnecessary development proposals which could be detrimental to the ethos of the area.

The Society also maintains a watching brief over any potential damage to the environment, to woodland and to wildlife.

The Society arranges two events during the year with a speaker, usually in the spring and autumn, and the Annual General Meeting is held in June.

A newsletter is produced twice a year to keep members informed of the society’s work. Additional information is provided on a regular basis through the News section of this website.
