Long Preston Heritage Group Events


LPHG’s AGM will be on Monday 21st October at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.

This will be followed by a talk by Sarah Lister about the Settle project to safeguard the gravestones and develop the history of families buried in the graveyard of Settle Parish Church. A similar project has started this year at St Mary’s Church in Long Preston and there will be an exhibition to show the progress of this local project in the Village Hall on Sunday 20th  October from 11am until 4pm. Refreshments will be available.

Stories in Stone

Stories in Stone, linked to the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, have asked LPHG to  advertise events, some of which have passed.  Apparently it has been difficult getting this information out.

One of these events is  the opportunity to join Dr David Johnson on a guided tour of Thorns, especially that there is only permission to fully access the site 3 more times since the excavation has finished.

On November 11, Long Preston together with the rest of the country  commemorated the end of World War 1.  The report and photographs are now available in the Village Galleries section of this website.

The group currently has 2 ongoing projects which are detailed under 'Current Projects':  Archiving and one connected to St Mary’s Church.  See above for additional information about the Church Project.
