About Us

Beccles and District Historical Society was founded in 1927. 

Each year we organise a number of excursions to places of historical interest.  For several years at least one of the excursions has been a residential.  In 2016 our residential was to Ironbridge, visiting Kenilworth Castle en route; and in June 2017 we visited Northumberland, including Alnwick Castle, Cragside and Lindisfarne.

We provide a programme of evening talks from October to April (omitting January), held at Hungate Church in Beccles.  Non-members may attend the talks for a small charge.

We are keen to work with local organisations with an interest in history.

We welcome new members.
