We regularly get over 35 people attend our evenings, and sometimes 50. We have expanded into running walks at various intervals throughout the year, and more extensively through the summer, often connected with our talks.'

'Bath and Bristol are rich in Jane Austen associations, both biographical and fictional. She visited Bath twice in the 1790s and was resident there from 1801 to 1806. The City is mentioned in each of her six novels and forms the setting for a large part of both Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. Jane Austen stayed in Bristol at least once, in 1806. It features in the Juvenilia (Lesley Castle), which may indicate an earlier visit. In Northanger Abbey, some of the characters set off to visit Blaise Castle, in Bristol. Mrs Elton in Emma comes from Bristol. Jane Austen's parents married in Bath at Old St Swithin's (not the present church), and her father was also buried there. There is a plaque on 4 Sydney Place, the Austens' home for the first three years of their Bath life, and many streets and buildings familiar from the novels may still be seen.'

'From Saxon times until 1974, the Royal County of Berkshire extended to the western edge of the city of Oxford, separated from it only by the River Thames. That river marked Berkshire's northern border and it is entirely fitting that Abingdon — Berkshire's principal settlement for so many years — continues to host the most northerly of Berkshire Family History Society's six local branches. The Vale branch meets on the third Monday evening of the month.'
