A lot has happened in Gloucester since our last Meeting there in 1989, and our President is keen for members to visit Blackfriar's Priory and Llanthony Secunda Priory, both of which have undergone extensive renovations in recent years. Their buildings have been brought back into daily use and are key attractions in Gloucester's rich heritage. As we walk between the two we shall also learn about the archaeological finds on the Gloucester Castle site.
The transcription of the Gloucestershire Hearth Tax 1672 has been made available by Jan Broadway. She hopes when time permits to produce a full scholarly edition and analysis, but feels researchers may appreciate access to the transcription in the meantime.
