Miscellany page guide

What's New?
Why we have these pages and what's been changing.
Member Projects Research projects on which members are active are often seen as a health indicator for societies such as ours.
These brief descriptions will be picked up by Google etc and we hope that useful contacts will be generated.
Portable Antiquities
Scheme Finds
Direct access to the PAS Database to view records of finds in our parishes and the wider area. Thousands of archaeological objects are discovered nationally each year, many of these by metal detector users, but also by people whilst out walking, gardening or going about their daily work. Finds in our area recorded with the Scheme help to advance our knowledge of its history and archaeology.
Streets & Roads
Aims to build up an on-line record of change in Ashtead, the Bookhams, Fetcham & Leatherhead main streets and roads from memories and images. It's what the camera in our phones was made for!
Potted Histories Potted Histories was a monthly series of local history articles, almost all written by the late Goff Powell, published in the popular Ashtead & Leatherhead Local. They were based on Goff's own extensive collection of local postcards and on images held by the Society.
