For more than 40 years, members of Tackley Local History Group have been exploring the history of this Oxfordshire village and the people who lived and worked in and around it from 12000 BC to the 20th century.
We have published several books, and our exhibition Tackley Through Time can be seen in St Nicholas’ Church. We have carried out excavations at the church and at Gibraltar Point, undertaken archaeological investigations, and built up a collection of archives which is kept in the village hall. We run several archaeological and historical projects, and organise an annual series of talks from September to April.
New members are always welcome, whether from Tackley or further afield. The subscription is £10 per year. Please contact the secretary Sue Ashton at 10 St Nicholas Road, on 01869 331325, or at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are around 270 members in our Facebook group.
