The Milestone Society

National Events & Activities

An Annual Conference/AGM is held early in October, usually in the Midlands. Regional groups host other meetings; both include a variety of speakers, presentations, and discussions.

Some County and Local Groups organise events ranging from formal meetings with speakers through coffee mornings and themed walks.

The County and Local Groups raise funds for restoration, conservation and rescue projects, including obtaining grants from Local Authorities, Parishes, Heritage Funding and other initiatives.

They also raise awareness of the Society and its aims by giving talks to other societies, schools, and special interest groups and by obtaining press coverage; for information on your County Group, email John Haynes.



All members, guests, and visitors are welcome at all our meetings.
