Garway Heritage Group

…is a friendly and informal group that promotes interest in local heritage including the area’s crafts and traditions and its natural and physical environment. 

The village of Garway and its surrounding area have a long and fascinating history. Worked flints from the Stone Age have been found, and an Iron Age enclosure was recently excavated on Garway Hill. Monasticism reached Garway in the 6th century and St Michael’s Church dates from the 12th century, one of the few remaining Templar churches. 

Join us for:- 

* Monthly meetings September – April with illustrated talks 

* Led walks in the area 

* Tours of places often not open to the public 

* Involvement in planning future events and projects 

Upcoming meetings:- Third Tuesday of each month between September and April 

7.30pm in Garway Community Centre

16th April Dr Ruth Richardson – ‘A History of Herefordshire Field Names’ Most field names emanate from tithe-maps which date to around 1840. Dr. Richardson edited the survey of the original maps and other material.
