Clavering Landscape History Group celebrated their 20th anniversary at their annual general meeting.

Many of the group's 80 members attended the event at Clavering Court Barn.

Coordinator Jacqueline Cooper discussed the group's activities over the past year, which included lectures, outings, and the creation of a 'history corner' in Clavering Church.


Members Peter Milledge and Barbara Dulley also put together an album of graveyard inscriptions.

Meanwhile, members Andrea Pearce and Jean Wilson discussed their research on the families and houses of Stickling Green.

The group, founded in 2004 to survey medieval Clavering Castle, has since organised guided tours, exhibitions, information boards and more.

The next two lectures will be on April 15 and May 21, covering 'genetic genealogy' and the meaning of landscape respectively.
