Welcome to The Radnorshire Society
The Radnorshire Society, established in 1930, is concerned with the archaeology and history of the historic county of Radnorshire (now part of Powys).
We welcome new members, whether they live in Radnorshire or further afield. Benefits of membership include access to our Archive and Library, a copy of the current year’s Radnorshire Society Transactions, plus lectures and field visits to local sites of interest.
An Executive Committee manages a programme of public lectures and excursions, oversees the running of the Society’s local history library, (including its important archive of Radnorshire related material), and deals with a wide range of enquiries from correspondents world-wide.
The Field section is the research arm of the society. It organises a separate programme of talks, research, and field trips, and also publishes an annual illustrated newsletter.
The Transactions of the Society is issued annually in a bound volume and is an important scholarly publication incorporating academic research and archive material.
Radnorshire from Above by Chris Musson
The Society has just reprinted Radnorshire from Above by Chris Musson, one of the pioneers of the application of aerial photography to archaeology. This superb book is a celebration of the history, archaeology and landscapes of Radnorshire as seen from the air. This highly popular and acclaimed book has been out of print since its first printing rapidly sold out in early 2014. It is lavishly filled with amazing and beautiful photographs accompanied by Chris’s informative and authoritative text. The stunning images of traces still visible in the landscape show the county’s history spanning over 4,000 years.

Radnorshire Society Facebook Page
The Radnorshire Society has just started a Facebook page to showcase views, news, observations and any other information on the history and culture of Radnorshire. This is an open forum so all input is encouraged, not only from Society members but from everyone who has an interest in this old county. Other societies with a common aim are also welcome to post information of their Radnorshire activities.
A few posts have already been posted and we hope over time that this will expand significantly as the Page becomes more widely known. This is your Page – drop in and join the conversation. Bookmark it, tag your friends, share it and like it: 👍
Archive and Library
Thanks to the great work by Lloyd Lewis and the Librarian Brian Matthews and many others, the Society’s Archive and Library continues to develop as a centre for research into the history of Radnorshire. The Society’s extensive collection of books, documents and photographs are available to researchers and the curious. The work of cataloguing the growing collection continues and ensures that it is readily available in appropriate surroundings and is easily searched. Society members and others are encouraged to visit Dolmynach House and see for themselves. There is a wealth of information for everyone with an interest in Radnorshire history. The Library and Archive is open Tuesday mornings or by special appointment.
See our Library page for more details.
