Over the last forty years, members of the Tackley Local History Group have been exploring the past of the village and the people who have lived and worked in and around it from 12,000 BC to the 20th century.  The Group has published books on a range of subjects, from a history of the village to a collection of old photographs (see below).  We have carried out excavations at the Church, undertaken archaeological investigations of Romano-British sites, and built up a collection of archives which is kept in the committee room in the village hall.

The group organises talks on the 4th Monday of the month in the village hall at 8 pm during winter. Arrive at 7:45pm if you would like a cup of tea and stay for a glass of wine afterwards

New members welcome.

Subscription £6 pp. pa.  Attendance at individual meetings £2
