There are approximately 5 meetings with speakers each year and at least one field excursion. Meetings take place in Harberton or Harbertonford on alternative dates, details of which can be found in the Programme.
Members of the Society have gathered information on the past history of the villages, personalities and the Parish including the preparation of historic walks around both Harberton and Harbertonford. The Society is making collections of photographs and some artefacts and have embarked on an oral history project to build an archive of first hand histories in both villages.
The Society is keen to receive photographs/articles/family records for the archives which can also be added to our website.
