Welcome to the Clifton Antiquarian Club Website

Clifton Antiquarian Club is based in Bristol, although members are distributed across the southern half of England and Wales. We seek to promote a better understanding of our archaeological heritage and meet on several occasions during the year for lectures, tours and research projects. Please feel free to contact us if you have any queries or are interested in getting involved.

Club News and Announcements 

Daneway Walk

What’s the connection between a pub, a disused canal, the longest tunnel in the world, a vanished manor house, the Mason-Dixon line, salt, soap, an old road to London and two water-powered mills?
The answer is the next Clifton Antiquarian Club event, a circular walk starting and
finishing at Daneway, near Cirencester, on Wednesday 13th April. See the Daneway 2022 flyer for further details.
