Comberton Antiquarian Society

Antiquarians are a friendly group of people who have an interest in all things historical. However this title covers a very wide range of topics so that we enjoy speakers on a variety of subjects. These can include places, people, silver, art, ceramics, architecture, past skills, museums, local customs, clocks, trains, aircraft, antiques and plenty more.


Normally we meet on the 4th Tuesday of each month from September to June, at Comberton Village Hall at 8pm, with a different speaker each month.

Currently, physical meetings are suspended because of Covid, but we have held virtual meetings using Zoom.

Godfrey Curtis

Godfrey presented on his recently published book "Three Cambridge Gentlemen in North Wales".
Unfortunately, the first four minutes of his original presentation were not recorded, and have been spliced in from a replay - spot the join!

Copies of the book are available from Godfrey.

Paul Hardy

Paul presented on "Mapping History - Paths Around Comberton in Lockdown", particularly covering the Lot Way and lost highways.

For more information on the Lot Way, see Paul's Lot Way Comberton - Lost Highway page, and for ideas on a better path network see Paul's Comberton Path Network Ideas page.
