Welcome to the Marcham Society website

The Marcham Society was founded in 1994 to encourage community interest in the archaeology, history, natural history and environment of the village and the local area. We arrange eight evening meetings each year with talks by guest speakers or members. There are monthly walks and group visits to local places of interest. 

Ammonite, Perisphinctus pickeringius The ammonite, Perisphinctus pickeringius, symbol of the Marcham Society, is a local geological reference. The original named specimen was found in Marcham. Local Corallian limestone contains many such fossils.

The Society publishes pamphlets and booklets, particularly the series "Coral Rag" which contains articles written by members on a variety of topics. (see 'Publications')

We plan to meet on the fourth Monday of the month in the Main Hall of Marcham Centre. (For these meetings and other events see: 'Programme')
