There are currently about 480 members of the Lundy Field Society, mostly in Britain but with others around the world. The society meets annually at its AGM which is usually held in Crediton, near Exeter, at the beginning of March. As well as society business there are talks on recent work on the island and an opportunity to meet other members.

Members often also meet on the island.

New members are always welcome - you can join here.

The LFS produces three publications which are distributed to members, a Newsletter in February, the Annual Report in the autumn and the Journal containing longer academic papers. The Journal is produced annually or biennially depending on contributions. The LFS promotes and publishes research on the island and members also carry out conservation-related work on the island.

If you have something to contribute, please contact the relevant editor.

It is with huge sadness that we share news of the death of our President, Diana Keast, who passed away peacefully last night.

Diana was the last surviving private owner of Lundy. Her father, Martin Coles Harman, purchased Lundy in 1925 and following his death Martin's surviving children inherited Lundy. It was Diana, with her sister Ruth and sister-in-law Kay, who sold Lundy to the National Trust in 1969.
