Having published The North Marston Story and created The Heritage Centre, the History Club is now planning a series of exhibitions and talks to make full use of our new facilities. These will all be held at the Wesley Centre and look at a range of popular themes, many using actor/presenters in period costume to help to bring alive. For more information, visit our Forthcoming Events page.
We continue to produce a range of publications and audio-visual material about the history of North Marston; you can download our full list by clicking here: Publications list
