Field Visits

The association organises a number of visits each year, one longer tour, usually overseas and others in the UK.

Many field visits are also included in the Annual Conference and the Practical Days


In most years an overseas tour is planned in the Spring. Recent trips have included: Sweden, the USA, Germany, the Czech Republic, France, Romania, the Netherlands, Saxony and Hungary.

Poland 2022 – update 11 Oct 2021

We are hoping to run this much postponed trip on 16th – 22nd May 2022

Overseas travel restrictions in the UK have been lifted and entry to Poland without quarantine is now allowed for those who are vaccinated.

But vaccination rates in Poland are much lower than the UK and this means hotels, bars, restaurants, museums and other indoor sites are still restricted in numbers.

Subject to the above, we are hoping to run the same itinerary as before but further organisation is being held at present until the situation there improves.
