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.

Members of the public are welcome to attend our meetings.

The programme for 2017/8 is available at the heading tab.


Next Meeting

25 January 2018 at 7:00 pm

Ambleside Parish Centre, St Mary’s Church, Ambleside LA22 9DH

This will be our annual Jacob’s Join supper to which everyone attending brings a contribution of food: savory or sweet. This should be finger food, i.e. not a stew or trifle! Soft drinks, tea, coffee, paper plates and napkins will be provided. Please bring your own if you want more than a soft drink.

This will be followed by a short Annual General Meeting then the opportunity to show your best natural history photographs taken during 2017 (no more than six each, brought on a memory stick).

This meeting is open to all, including non-members.

Note the change of location and meeting time.

The Percival Lecture Theatre may be used and is shown as part of building number 5; 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 2 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.
