Winter Walks 2022

Everyone is invited to our monthly winter walks. A chance to explore the footpaths of Ludham with a friendly informal group. There is usually someone there to explain the history as we go. No walks are longer than 4 miles and generally take about one and a half hours. Meet outside Ludham Convenience Store in the center of Ludham at 2.00pm . Bring boots as it can be muddy.

Winter walks will be back in October 2022. Enjoy the Summer.

There are details of Ludham Walks you can follow on our Walks Page.

Other events:

The archive group can often be found at village events. We put on displays so that everyone can see the archive collection.
Sometimes we give presentations to other groups with a slide show or video.

Review of New Material:

The Ludham Archive continues to collect new archive material about Ludham. New items are constantly arriving.
We look at new material at most meetings, but such is the volume of new stuff that we need to devote some of our meetings to looking at it. These are fascinating events and you never know what gems are going to turn up next.

TBA (To Be Advised):

All this means is that we don't know for sure what will be happening at this meeting. We have lots of plans for future meetings but the dates can be a bit fluid and we sometimes have to change them about a bit.
Keep looking in to this page to see the latest information.
Whatever happens, it will be interesting and often a bit different. That's normal at the Ludham Archive.
