This is a Society for people who have an interest in history and live in the area of Kirkby Stephen in the upper part of the valley of the River Eden in Cumbria. Lecture meetings are held at Kirkby Stephen Grammar School every month in the autumn, winter and early-spring months. Non-members are welcomed for a small admission charge. In the summer months visits are arranged to take members to places of historical interest.
Members of the Society have contributed to the 'Stainmore 150' programme by providing much of the local historical material published on this site and in the commemorative guide
