Civic Society



   Welcome to the Richmond Civic Society


The Richmond and District Civic Society is based on the four cornerstones of what makes Richmondshire in North      Yorkshire such a rewarding place to live:

  •    A wealth of heritage

  •    A long and rich history

  •    A beautiful townscape

  •    A surrounding area of outstanding natural beauty


   For fifty years the society has nurtured and developed a pride in our area through:

  •    Holding monthly talks on our local history, culture and landscape

  •    Monitoring all planning applications affecting heritage sites

  •    Organizing visits and tours both within our area and throughout the UK

  •    Providing information for visitors to Richmond

  •    Keeping strong links with other civic societies and heritage organizations in the UK.


   Why not join The Civic Society and discover a great deal about where you live.


Each year in November, the society publishes its Review, a combination of reports on the year's activities and articles written by members and professionals.  These are wide ranging but most often have a local history or heritage theme.  

Non-members can buy copies of The Review from Castle Hill Bookshop in the town or through the society (please use the Contact page).
