in North Somerset
Around 55 people braved the snowy weather to attend a talk on 'Early Monasteries in North Somerset' by Professor Mick Aston of Channel 4's Time Team fame.
His talk gave us an insight into the various monasteries that had been in places such as Banwell, Congresbury and Woodspring to name a few, in the post-Roman period. It was an extremely interesting talk and a privilege to have Professor Aston visit the Society.
The Society reached a milestone on the same evening when the 100th member joined.
