Annual subscriptions are due in October. Due to increased costs we have again changed our venue.  The Church Hall on Long Street will be our venue for the forthcoming lecture season.  The membership subscription is £10.00 per person.  Society members pay £2 each to be admitted to each lecture. Guests  pay £4 per event to attend a lecture.

Summer and winter programme cards are distributed to members, and our winter events are publicised in The Easingwold Advertiser and Thirsk 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 winter lecture venue; travelling along Long Street from the south, it is on your left a short distance before the pedestrian crossing with traffic lights. There are green wrought iron railings with several large trees overhanging the pavement just behind the railings.  The car park entry is just before the railings.  The parking area is in front of the Church Hall. This is available for those with mobility needs and our speaker for the day and there is some space for members’ vehicles. You may of course drop off passengers, before parking elsewhere. There is a North Yorkshire Council carpark off Showfield Drive. To reach this, turn left just after the pedestrian crossing. It is then on your right.  There are no parking charges levied in Easingwold.

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