Our programme for lectures, walks and visits for this year is below. All members and vistors are very welcome. Please book in advance for walks and visits with the Programme Secretary at programme@sprattonhistory.org

The new programme for the forthcoming year will be announced at the AGM held annually in May and posted here immediately afterwards.

Download the popular Heritage Trail walk through the village. This can be made individually, or guided for groups by arrangement

We welcome suggestions for inclusion in future programme seasons from lecturers. Subjects preferred include key historical events in Northamptomshire or ideally on subjects concerning Spratton's and its surroundings.
