Other Groups of interest in Cambridgeshire

From time to time other organisations with interests overlapping our own – churches or their furnishings, architecture and building history, archaeology, or local history more generally –  notify us of events which may be of interest to our members.    Where these events relate to churches or their contents we will circulate this information to our members.    For other information about these organisations and their activities, members should visit : –
