- Our next meeting will be on Monday, February 19thwhen Stephen Barker will talk about “The Battle of Cropredy Bridge and the Oxford Campaign”. Heritage adviser Stephen returns with an account of the 1644 Battle of Cropredy Bridge, geographically the nearest Civil War battle to Adderbury, and shows us how the battle fitted into the Oxfordshire Civil War campaigns.
- Please note that our AGM and our talk, “Travels with Auntie” will now take place on Monday 16th April rather than on April 23rd as shown in our printed programme.
- 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 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 is £12.50 and the subscription year begins in January. Visitors are welcome (cost £2.50).
