The Hampton-in-Arden Local History Group is having an open day on Wednesday 11th July 2018 to showcase their archives, research and resources to local residents. If you are interested in the history of the village, perhaps your own street or home, please pop in and have a look at what they have from 3.00 to 8.00pm in the Fentham Meeting Room, Marsh Lane.
The Local History Group was formed in 1992 with the aim of promoting the interest of local history within the community. The Group holds a huge collection of artefacts and records relating to the village including census returns, electoral rolls, parish & manorial records, hundreds of old photographs and postcards, newspaper articles, copies of previous talks, presentations and research studies, books on local history, old maps, plans & surveys, wills/probate, house deeds and general historical information on local schools, businesses, organisations, the Peels, the railways and the Fentham Trust.
