Annual subscriptions are due in October. Due to increased costs brought about by our change of venue to the Methodist Chapel on Chapel Street, Society members also need to pay £2 each to be admitted to each lecture. Membership subscription has increased to £10.00 per person commencing for the 2021-2022 season. Guests now pay £4 to attend a lecture.

Summer and winter programme cards are distributed to members, and our winter events are publicised in The Easingwold Advertiser and Weekly News, and those events, and the summer visits are written up therein, subsequently.

All who share our interest in Easingwold, its history and caring for its environment are genuinely welcome to join the Forest of Galtres Society, and to share what we do.

Please apply for membership and for copies of the Diary of William Lockwood to The Honorary Secretary by email or by post.

How to find us

To find the new winter lecture venue; travelling along Long Street turn east along Chapel Street – a one-way street – and almost immediately the Methodist Chapel appears on your right. There is a small amount of parking in front of the Chapel. This is best kept available for those with mobility needs and our speaker for the day. You may of course drop of passengers there, before parking somewhere else.

There is some parking space just as you turn into Chapel Street, prior to reaching the Chapel on the left side of the road. There is an HDC carpark off Showfield Drive, and, of course, the market place. There are no parking charges levied in Easingwold.

Here is the venue’s postcode; YO61 3AE to input into your smart phone or sat nav.
