Pavey Group, the Charmouth Local History Society.
Neil Mattingly, jointly with Liz Scott will be giving an illustrated talk of the work of Claud Hider who in 1923 most graphically captured our village in a unique photo collection. This was the time when the so-called New Road (Old Lyme Road to you and me) was on its last legs, and walking to Lyme in the midst of the encroaching jungle of the undercliff was a hazardous business. The photographs won't exclusively be of Charmouth but will feature our local environment.
Members, and those rejoining on the evening (subs are still £6 per family) will attend free, visitors £3.
