Covid-19 update: in line with government guidelines, we have a small number of events planned to run from June 2021. You can find more information in our latest newsletter and also in the ‘Upcoming Events’ section on the right hand side of this page.
Welcome to the website of the Galmpton and Churston Ferrers Local History Group.
The group was formed in 1996 by a group of enthusiasts eager to record and preserve features and information about our parish.
The group investigates and records details of our local past, preserves e.g. the Galmpton Lime Kiln and the Broadsands Tomb, provides information about the history and wildlife in the Galmpton Creek area, and exhibits data annually at the Gooseberry Pie Fair in Galmpton every July.
A comprehensive ‘Guide to Galmpton’ map containing information of local historic interest is available at the Manor Inn and Galleon Stores.
A programme of talks and guided walks/visits is organised annually. Annual membership costs £5 for individuals and £8 for a full family. We are a friendly group and are always pleased to meet new potential members.
