Feniton History Group Meeting Sept 12th 2023

Hi All

Just an early reminder of the next meeting which will be at 8pm in the Nog Inn.

The meeting will be different from normal as it will be entirely devoted to the organisation of events to celebrate the 475th Anniversary of the Battle of Fenny Bridges.

The provisional committee for the event will be running the meeting but everyone is welcome to attend as the more input and ideas we can get at this early stage the better.


The next meeting. 8th Feb. 2022

 Sadly it was decided to cancel January's meeting due to Covid.

The next one is scheduled for Tuesday 8th February in the Nog Inn.

The 105th Meeting

Five of us attended last night’s meeting where we enjoyed mince pies and macaroons brought along by Lionel [many thanks to his wife for making them for us] and had nearly two hours chat about numerous things historical [I was too busy eating the macaroons to make a note of the subjects, but they were very diverse]. See below:

We discussed marriage laws and bigamy, the industrial revolution, Toll roads and acts of parliament relating to them.  Alan had a passage about Bishop Grandisson of Exeter and his origins.  The 1939 Register and the 1921 census being released next year. 


The next meeting [subject to there being no changes in being able to have meetings] will be on 

TUESDAY January 11th 8pm at the Nog Inn.

Wishing all a Happy Christmas

First meeting after Lock down . The 104th meeting

Five of us turned up last night to get the group started again and had a good hour and a half discussing a wide variety of subjects [Bishops, Cathedrals, Walking old Railway Lines, Schools, Chapels, Yule Logs, Marriages, Family History, Railway staff, Fenny Bridges Mill, Knightstone Manor, and Sherwood Farm were amongst the various topics].

Many thanks to Mike for opening the pub especially for us as I had forgotten when I booked the date that the pub no longer opens on Thursdays.  So those present took a decision that future meetings would be on the second Tuesday of each month. So the next meeting is booked for December 14th  at 8pm with the possibility of home made mince pies.
Hope to see as many of you as can make it and perhaps widen the topic range even further.

Hope to see everyone at the next meeting.


The Group is back after Covid

You will be please to know [or may not] that I have arranged for us to use the normal venue at the Nog Inn for a meeting on Thursday November 11th at 8pm.

Look forward to seeing as many of you as can make it.
