Grasmere History Group is a group of local people who meet monthly to discuss matters of local history. It is a very friendly, informal gathering at which we share our interests and ask questions of others who might know the answers we seek. We have a wide range of interests and in recent years we have produced exhibitions about Grasmere in the First World War and the early years of tourism in the Lake District.
This meeting focuses on the history of houses – not in Grasmere, but Thirlmere. Geoff Darrall will talk about a parish history project which sees the launch of a new book on the subject this March. Geoff will discuss the experiences of those north of the Raise as Grasmere History Group considers their own next steps in telling the history of their valley through a selection of its buildings.
New members from near or far are very welcome and we are always looking to meet more people with fascinating stories to tell about Grasmere and the Lake District. We meet on the first Tuesday of each month in the Jerwood Centre at 7.30pm. A speaker or discussion topic is usually arranged in advance; for more information about a specific date please get in touch with us.
