Great Ayton History Society

The Great Ayton History Society researches and records local history in the parishes of Great and Little Ayton. This information is made available to a wider audience through public presentations and exhibitions, guided walks and publications. The group meets alternate Wednesdays from 9:30am in the Friends’ Meeting House on High Green. There is no formal membership procedure (if you are interested just join us on any Wednesday) but we do have a constitution, officers and comprehensive insurance.
