Alan Stone – Local History and Cider Speaker

Alan Stone – Local SpeakerOne of my favourite ways of spreading knowledge about my passions is as a speaker to numerous local groups.

As I seem to be frequently asked back two or even three times I think the tag ‘popular local speaker’ may not be too immodest!

Subjects that I have given presentations on in recent years include:

  • Various aspects of local history for the Shepton Mallet town and district including Croscombe.
  • Silas the Victorian Rural Postman.
  • The history of Wassailing
  • Somerset Cider Heritage.
  • Cider today and marketing in the hypocritical world.
  • The Mid Somerset Show – and rural shows in general.
  • The Cheesemaking Heritage of Somerset.

I also lead groups for a variety of local history walks, cider tours and Wassails.
