  • In line with  government restrictions during the corona virus pandemic, our physical meetings were cancelled during 2020. Towards the end of 2020, however, we began to use Zoom as a means of resuming talks for our members on local history topics. We have continued this in 2021, and have the following Zoom talks arranged: 

Monday, 14th June: Evening talk by Marie-Louise Kerr on the Romans of Oxfordshire

Monday, 19th July: Evening talk by Alistair Lack on the Country Houses of Oxfordshire

Monday, 20th September: Evening talk by Stephen Oliver on the History and Restoration of St Mary’s, Adderbury

Monday, 18th October: Evening talk by Ciaran Walsh on the Otmoor Riots in a broader context

Monday, 15th November: End of Year Quiz

Further announcements about future talks will be made on the website in due course.

  • There are still copies available of the Association’s latest publication, In It Together, by Barry Davis. This is a detailed and informative study of how the village has coped with warfare throughout the centuries, giving equal importance to those who went off to fight and those who took important supporting roles at home. An absorbing gift for anyone with an interest in the history of Adderbury. Copies can be obtained either from Adderbury Library at a reduced cost of £10 (proceeds to Friends of the Library) or from the Association (see Contact Us above). Price £15, plus £3 postage and packing if applicable.
  • The Association’s meetings normally take place in the Adderbury Methodist Church School Room, Chapel Lane, Adderbury, at 7.15 p.m. for 7.30 p.m. New members are always very welcome. The annual subscription will be £15.00 from 2021 and the subscription year begins in January. Visitors are welcome (cost £2.50).
