Covington History Group

Covington History Group was formed with the aim of researching, recording and presenting the history of the village. Meetings take place on the fourth Monday of the month from September to April. The programme for each 'season' can include visiting speakers, primary document research, archaeology and additions to our timeline.

Topics have been the school, the manor and manorial rights and the history of the church. Highlights of recent years include a Reminiscences Evening, visits to local record offices, talks on the workhouse and the architecture of the church, the recording of oral history and, last year, the Covington Big Dig - archaeological testpitting. We have produced a History Trail for the village which is available in the Church and Village Hall (a pdf can be downloaded here). A revised History of the Church is now available in the church. We aim to produce a booklet describing what we have discovered about Covington in the past. Click here for notes supporting some current investigations.
