Summer Outings

Green Bar

Gloucestershire Branch

We were very pleased to have our 2023 branch outing in July.

Despite an extremely wet day 16 of us visited Woodchester Mansion, near Stroud, an amazing unfinished and haunted Grade I listed Gothic Revival masterpiece. Our guided tour took us around the building and grounds providing insights into the origins of the building and the reasons for its current unfinished state. Most of us discovered that it was far more ‘finished’ than we expected! We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and only took a short while to dry off!

It is a fascinating building in a lovely valley, and worth a visit if you haven’t been, opening times: 11am – 5pm every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, also Bank Holidays, until 5 November this year.  See

Our 2023-2024 programme will start in September

For this programme we are hoping to offer a mix of face-to-face and on-line events. Updates will be put on the programme page and emailed out when details are confirmed.

Updated August 2023
