Architecture

Status: Active, open to new members
Group Leader:
When: Monthly on Monday afternoons
4th
Venue: St Thomas Church Hall / Lounge

The Architecture Group has a lively and active membership who enjoy studying all aspects of architecture – local, national and international – ancient and modern.

What we look at reflects members’ interests, and meetings are usually led by a group member. Detailed knowledge of architecture is not necessary, just an interest in the built environment.

The group meets at 2.15pm on the fourth Monday of each month (Except December), unless we are out on a visit. Usually two or three times a year we go out for visits. We are currently meeting in the Lounge at St. Thomas's Church.  As this is not a house-based group we do not place a limit on numbers and any U3A member is welcome to come along to our meetings.
