'Coat of arms' of the British Horological Institute

Our varied and exciting programme of talks to be held by the Branch during 2019 is shown below.

We meet monthly on a Monday at the 'Globe Inn' near Bath where we have our own dedicated and comfortable room with video cameras, multi-media projectors etc. and an excellent selection of food and drink is available.
