Robertsbridge Archeological Society


The Society was formed in 1962 by two Robertsbridge schoolboys, John and David Martin, with the enthusiastic help of their mother Dorothy.  The Society still thrives today with a large membership but over the years has evolved into more of a local history society.

The Society always welcomes new members. Please contact the Secretary:

Mrs A.M. Barden, Lime Tree Cottage, Bellhurst Road, Robertsbridge, East Sussex TN32 5DS or email archaeology

The Society holds 8 meetings a year and usually arranges at least one outing as well. The current programme of meetings planned for 2017 so far  is shown below.
