WELCOME to the new website for the Yelverton & District Local History Society.


I hope you have been enjoying our recent outdoor events. Our next event is planned back at our normal venue in Meavy Parish Hall. We hope to see you there..

Please refer to the “Events in 2021” page and side panels on this page, for the details. We thank you for your patience and understanding.


Please note that fees paid for the year 2020 have been carried over to 2021 for all our current members.. Donations and new members always welcomed.

The Society was formed over thirty years ago, in 1982, by a group of people who believed there was a need to study the fascinating history of the villages nestling on the Yelverton side of Dartmoor, and to make an effort to record as much of that history as possible while the places existed free of development and the people remembered the past.

Each month (except December) we invite a speaker to present a talk on their own specialist subject. During the Summer months, this is an outdoor event with a visit to a place or location of interest for a tour or guided walk. Details on membership etc are on the ‘About’ page.
