April 28th Zoom Talk: Prof David Austin "Digging the Past in Strata Florida." 


The Annual Report for 2020, which shows that ALHS remained very active during the year, can now be read on the Annual Reports page. Members are invited to read these before the AGM.


Looking towards more 'normal' times - the provisional

programme of lectures for 2021 is available on the 'Talks' page

(see the menu on the left). There is also a provisional Visits programme for 2021 on the 'Visits' page.


Thank you to those members who have renewed their membership for 2020-21. We will need your continuing support. And remember, you will need to be a current member to join in with the Zoom lectures. New members are also very welcome at any time.


The revised edition of Discovering Abergavenny: Archaeology and History by Frank Olding is available now. See the Books and Leaflets page for how to get your copy.

During the longer daylight days, we organise walks around interesting areas of Abergavenny for members and for the public.
How to book?
Booking is not usually necessary but details are given on the walks page of this website, the press and on posters.
We also arrange guided tours for groups.



From May or June onwards, we visit places of historical interest.


How to book? A list is sent out to members by email (or post) in the January.


Book as soon as you can as places are now being allocated on a 'first come' basis, although there are sometimes cancellations later. You need to be a member to book.

We usually meet here    

The Borough Theatre, Market Hall, Cross Street, Abergavenny NP7 

If you are visiting the area you are welcome to attend any lecture. If you come more than once, please take out membership.

Membership desk, floodlighting and publications are available from shortly after 7.00pm.

Also available before the talk: information about the society, future events and other people's events.

Due to Covid-19 lectures and visits are temporarily suspended but we hope to restart in 2021. We are informed that the Borough Theatre will be re-opened in later this year.
