The Society, which celebrates its Golden Jubilee in 2021, is an independent, non-political registered charity whose aims are “To promote high standards of planning and architecture in Southwell and to secure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of features of historic or public interest.”
Membership is open to all.
The Society is consulted on planning matters by the Local Authority.
A large collection of photographs from the 19th century to the present including the “Loughton Collection” , can be viewed on the website or by arrangement.
Published by the Society in 2017 “Southwell – A Walking Tour”, may be purchased from a number of local outlets. The booklet guides the reader from the Church Street car park along an easy route of approximately 1.5 miles, drawing attention to most of the significant historic buildings and views of the town.
In May 2020 the Society replaced the crumbling milestone at the entrance to the Saracen’s Head Hotel with an exact replica of the original.
A regular series of visits, talks and social events is organised for members.
Details of the Society, activities, programme of events, news items, planning committee minutes, and photograph archive an all be found on our website: www.southwellcivicsociety.com
