Introduction

 

 

The Society organises two weekend meetings each year. The Annual General Meeting is held in early October in Barnstaple, North Devon. Spring meetings take place in various locations with a particular Williamson connection, such as the Lewisham area of London, North Norfolk, and Bedfordshire. In 2017 the venue was Carshalton, which, as Cross Aulton, was the setting for Richard Maddison and Hetty Turney's courtship in The Dark Lantern, the first volume of A Chronicle of Ancient Sunlight.

 

 

A weekend programme typically includes a major presentation and Society Supper on the Saturday evening, with talks, discussions, slides, displays, films, walks and visits to places of especial Williamson interest occurring over the rest of the weekend. Other events such as the London-based 'Study Days' attract a healthy following. Smaller local meetings are encouraged and draw considerable support. Local meetings provide an opportunity to meet and talk with people who share an interest in Henry Williamson.

 

 

Tours of the Battlefields of France have also been arranged, and places on these are highly sought after.
