AbbPast was formed in 2010 by the residents of Abbotskerswell to foster both the study of the village's history and also a wider interest in History.
We hold a meeting once a month, which is held on the second Monday, in Church House at 7. 30pm. There are also visits arranged to places of historical interest.
We have speakers on a variety of topics, which can be seen on the Meetings 2013 page. There are also Meeting Reviews to give an idea of the nature of each meeting.
AbbPast has been involved in various village projects: we have created a Village Trail, celebrated the Diamond Jubilee and written a booklet on the men who fought in The Great War as part of our 'The Roll of Honour Project', which was supported by the HLF's 'World War 1 Then & Now' fund. There are pages to these projects on this website.
Our latest Project is the writing of four history booklets telling the village's history: Industry & Commerce, Houses & Families, Religion & Education and Pubs Clubs & Governance.
We hope you find the website useful and easy to follow.
