The site is currently under development


The Ambleside Natural History Society meets in a spirit of friendship and goodwill to share in all aspects of natural history, geology, the countryside, its scenery, its flora and fauna, its use, its buildings, its history, the activities of its inhabitants, etc. Almost nothing is excluded.

On this site you will find the current programme of meetings for the Society. Members of the public are welcome to attend our meetings. To get in touch with the society use the ‘Contact Us’ button on the Main Menu.

The Percival Lecture Theatre may be used and is shown as part of building number 10; it is further up the hill than the Beehive and on the right of the paved area.

The alternative venue is the Beehive, building number 13 on the map.

If you turn in at The Armitt Museum, park in the car parks at the bottom of the hill (free in the evenings) then walk up the hill. The Beehive is the single storey building on your right, the Percival Lecture Theatre is slightly further up the hill to the flat area and is again on your right.
