Happy 2020 to All Visitors to Our Site!
The Society’s first meeting of the new year will be on Tuesday 18th February, starting at 7.30pm.
Derek Turner, former chairman of The Milestone Society, will speak on
“The History and Restoration of Milestones and other Way Markers in Oxfordshire”
The most recent Society publication An Iffley Miscellany : Fragments of Village History included a chapter ‘The Milestones of Iffley’ by one of our members, Greg Birdseye. As this publication is included in the 2019-2020 subscription existing members should need no reminding as to why this topic has a strong local history dimension. The booklet is for sale in the Iffley Community Shop to non-members.
