Edington & District History Group (EDHG), Somerset

Based at the old School Room in Edington, Somerset, covering all villages in the Polden Hills district, but centred on Edington, Catcott, Chilton Polden and Burtle.

The Group was founded in 2006, to carry on the work of the Edington Village Archive Group, which had been set up as part of the Millenium celebrations, to collect, research, study and share relevant information about or relevant to the history of the villages.

Talks are held most months (See Events tab).

An archive of local materials - photographs, directories, personal memories - is maintained at the School Room.

A small number of Publications are also produced or held, available for purchase.

Our latest publications are:

- the 4th edition of “Memorials at St George’s Church Edington” (February 2018);

- "The Story of Two Somerset Churches" on Stawell and Sutton Mallet (August 2018).

A newsletter is circulated, usually about every quarter. Latest edition was September 2018.

Special Event - "Let's Get Started" Family History for Beginners was held in Nov 2014.
