As a small group we find it beneficial to affiliate with other groups for training.  These include Recorders of Uttlesford; Haverhill and District Local History Group; Suffolk Local History Council and Stour Valley Community Archeaology.

We have attended numerous workshops on subjects from aeriel photograhy and medieval graffiti to Victorian housing and World War 1 art.

One member attended the archealogical dig of the Roman Homestead at Gestingthorpe and took part in digging for Roman pottery and pot washing in the afternoon.

We have attended the Recorders of Suffolk Conferences to learn about a number of other history topics including medieval Hadleigh and archaeology in Nayland.
