History Channel


You may be a long time Chapter member harking back to the ‘old days’ and complaining that nostalgia ‘ain’t what it used to be’, or you may be a new Chapter member thinking what sort of organisation have I joined, where did it all begin and how did it get to here?

Hopefully these pages will allow you to revisit some of the good times you have had with the Chapter, people, places and machines from the past, and at the same time provide some essential and definitive facts and figures on the History of the Hogsback Chapter.

Please contact me on historian@hogsbackchapteruk.org if you have any anecdotes or stories you wish to share with other members of the Chapter.
