Newton Poppleford Local History Group

Our Local History Group was formed in 2014, with the objectives of collecting, saving, documenting and recording information about the local area.  This came about partly because the commemoration of the outbreak of WW1 increased interest in the past, and a growing concern that while there are still some people around who have some memories of part of the war and the times following, these won’t be around for ever.

Books have been written about this area of East Devon, but there are gaps to be filled in so this task is to be addressed in the coming months and years.

We welcome new members to our meetings, which are usually held on the first Monday of each month at 14:30 in Newton Poppleford village hall.
