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).
