St Peters Hargrave

Social Groups


This Group was founded nearly 40 years ago, with the object of researching local history, organising talks, and visits to places of interest. We meet in Huxley Village Hall for September – November, and January meetings, and in Hargrave Church Hall for December and February to May meetings. A history of the two villages was first published in 1988, with a revised edition published in 2006. Connected with Cheshire Local History Association and numerous other local groups, it is ideal for anyone wanting to know more about where they live – we are sure to know someone who can answer almost any question. Nor are we only local in interest; we have had talks on Pre-Raphaelites, Lacemaking, Rivers, Railways, Verdun, Roman Chester, Folk Medicines etc, etc. Did you know about our medieval pottery kilns, or how significant the Battle of Rowton Moor really was – and where it actually started?

Our group meet once a month, generally on the third Friday of the month, meeting in Huxley at 9.30 opposite the school. We then drive to the location of the walk, often car sharing. Our walks are not too strenuous ranging between 3 and 6 miles long. 

We get together to enjoy healthy exercise and friendly chat, usually ending our walks with a coffee at a local café or pub. 

Everyone is very welcome.
