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. Click in the link in the heading to go to the website.

It currently has over 60 members; many of whom are actively involved in the on-going practical management of the site. Click in the link in the heading to go to the website.
