The group leader's home is in Downend. There is level access, parking on the street and is served by buses 19 and m3 - contact group leader for advice.

Led by an enthusiast for language (not a professional), the group discusses historic change and development of languages, primarily English but with the possibility of extending to some study of the history of other languages.

Group members are always welcome to make suggestions regarding particular topics and to offer their own leadership on them. No prior knowledge is needed, just an interest in the subject.
