The Thoresby Society - A chronological list of our excursions, 1891-2016


with an index of the places visited.


Sources: In most cases details of the excursion are taken from a programme leaflet held in the Society’s records. There are no programmes in the files for excursions 1-14 19, 21, 22 and 26. In these cases the information taken from the list of previous excursions printed in the programme for excursion 49. In other cases where there is no programme in the files the information is taken from the Annual Report.


The first visit of the Society was to Kirkstall Abbey on 11th July 1891. This visit is recorded in the Report of the Council presented to the Third Annual Meeting held on 23rd March 1892. However in subsequent lists of excursions this visit does not appear. When numbers were given to excursions in subsequent lists, the number 1 was assigned to the excursion of 7th September 1891to Kiddal Hall and Barwick-in-Elmet. So in this list the first excursion is given the number 0.
