Dear <<First Name>>,
Welcome to the November Newsletter. The clocks have gone back, Hallowe'en has be'en and gone, and a new lockdown is coming. So what better to do than to get stuck into some local history!

Writing Workshop: Plot, People and Place

On Tuesday 10 November at 7:30pm Jo Costin will be running a novel writing workshop. We will be using Zoom for this, just as for the usual talks. Places are now very limited so if you are interested please book your spot by emailing as soon as possible. Details of how to join the workshop will be sent out a few days beforehand to those who have booked.

Walking Cambridge book

Metro Publications have very recently published a new book in the Walking Guide series, this time on Cambridge. It features a Mill Road walk amongst others, and some members of the society, including Allan Brigham, helped with some of the historical background.

The publishers have generously given us a discount code to get you £1 off the list price. Simply go to to order and at checkout enter MILL ROAD when asked for a voucher code. They also give free shipping.

Note we're not getting a cut from the sales (more's the pity!) but it's a nice little book, and pocket-sized so it's easy to take out with you and refer to. Here are couple of spreads from the Mill Road walk.

David Parr House Online Tours

Many of you will already be on the David Parr House mailing list so will know this but, for those that aren't, the David Parr House are currently running online virtual guided tours of the house. You join via Zoom and are taken around a scanned 3D photographic model of the house by a live guide. After your tour you have the rest of the day to explore the model, along with additional video and audio, by yourself.

Tours are running until mid-December at the discount price. Book up at

Not your usual Victorian Parlour Evening

Save the date on Tuesday 8 December as we are still planning to run a Christmas musical event in conjunction with the Cambridge Folk Club.

More details as soon as they are confirmed.

Feel free to forward this email to anyone you think may be interested.
