Lamplugh & District Heritage Society

Morton Lonning, Lamplugh

Lamplugh & District Heritage Society is based in Lamplugh, Cumbria UK and meets regularly to discuss the local history of the area. The Society's monthly meetings are usually held in the Lamplugh Village Hall (but see below for temporary relocation to The Gather, Ennerdale) on the 4th Thursday each month, (commencing at 7.30pm) no meetings are held in August and December. Usually, the June and July meetings are away from our usual base and can take the form of a walk such as on the Cycle Track to look at the fauna or a visit to a local place of interest - eg Calder Abbey. The annual subscription for family membership is £7.50 and for a single person, £5. You are welcome to join us for a one-off meeting. Admission of £2 for members and £3 for non members is collected at each of our meetings to help cover the cost of the usual light refreshments and towards the cost of hiring the hall. See also our Facebook page.
