Edington & District History Group (EDHG), Somerset
Based at the old School Room in Edington, Somerset, covering all villages in the Polden Hills district, but centred on Edington, Catcott, Chilton Polden and Burtle.
The Group was founded in 2006, to carry on the work of the Edington Village Archive Group, which had been set up as part of the Millenium celebrations, to collect, research, study and share relevant information about or relevant to the history of the villages.
Talks are held most months (See Events tab).
An archive of local materials - photographs, directories, personal memories - is maintained at the School Room.

A small number of Publications are also produced or held, available for purchase. Our latest publication, a 4th edition of “Memorials at St George’s Church Edington has now been published, (February 2018).
A similar booklet on the churches of Stawell and Sutton Mallet is also in preparation.

A newsletter is circulated, usually about every quarter. Next edition due February 2018.

Special Event - "Let's Get Started" Family History for Beginners was held in Nov 2014.
