The Daresbury Lewis Carroll Society
Welcome to the Daresbury Lewis Carroll Society Website.
We are a friendly informal society with a passion for Lewis Carroll and his works. We meet twice a year in Daresbury Village Hall, or at least we did before 'lockdown', at meetings with guest speakers and take part in various Lewis Carroll related events across the area.
The header shows a collage of scenes which can all be found in Daresbury with the exception of the picture of a strangely dressed group of people which was taken at the opening of a Lewis Carroll related exhibition. On the left is a picture of part of a stained glass window which you will finf in Daresbury Church. Next are a Cheshire cat which you'll find in a barn up the road from the church and and a weather vane which is just across the road from the cat. Finally you see the start of the Lewis Carroll Walk.
The October 2020 Meeting of the Society
I expect this will come as no surprise but, as a result of the ‘maximum of six in a gathering’ ruling and the ever increasing rate of corona-virus infections, the October meeting of our society is also cancelled. We’ll schedule a date for the Spring meeting next year year when, hopefully, the corona vaccine will have been rolled out, we’ll all be protected and life will have returned to normal - I think I saw a white rabbit wearing a waistcoat while I was writing that!
Keith Wright's Spring 2012 edition of The Daresbury Chronicle. is now completed and we have started on on the May 2019 Newsletter and we have now added Keith Wright's article about Harry Furniss which is well worth a read
Four articles by Stephen Martin are also recent additions to this site. You can see them by following this link to New Articles.
The various buttons in the menu above will take you through the website. Hopefully it's all fairly intuitive. Below is a bit more information about some of the pages and how our site is organised and works.
Most of the content on this site will be found on these pages. Here we are collecting all the articles published in the societies magazines since 2004. They are all indexed so you can use the Search button in the menu to see if we have anything on a topic you are interested in. Not all the magazines are present however. So far we have added forty articles with over three hundered to go and expect to have it completed over the next twelve months or so. Do keep coming back to check on our progress.
There were two series of magazines - The Daresbury Chronicles and The Newsletter.
The Daresbury Chronicles were edited and produced by our chairman at that time, Keith Wright, from 2004 until his death in 2016. They contain a wealth of information about Lewis Carroll and about our organisation.
The Newsletter, in its current form, has been produced each Spring and Autumn since 2015.
If you click on either of the covers shown here you will be taken to the articles published in the corresponding magazine.
New articles are added when they become available and then included in the appropriate magazine when it is published.
