Several hundred members belong to The Kilvert Society, united by their appreciation of the remarkable Diary of Francis Kilvert, who died in 1879 aged only 38.

Visits are arranged to places associated with the Diarist (Radnorshire, Wiltshire, Herefordshire, Bristol, Bath, London, Oxford, as well as Cornwall, Sussex and Lincolnshire) and in April a seminar and dinner is held (this year at the Radnorshire Arms Hotel, Presteigne), the day after the annual meeting at the Bishop’s Palace in Hereford.

Membership brings the Journal, published twice a year, and a mid-year newsletter as well as the fellowship of the Society, the source of many lifelong friendships.
