Over the last 40 years the Society has grown from strength to strength. We have a fascinating range of publications, some interesting projects and active participation in local events

We are now based in The Old Print Works, in the eighteenth century house which fronts on to the Moseley Road, and next to the  Gap Café. Our base is right next to the lovely gallery space at the Works, which is ideal for exhibitions.
