About us

The Sawbridgeworth Local History Society

Our Society was formed in April 2016. Prior to this a number of people had been involved in a World War One Commemoration Group. Encouraged and helped by the Herts at War Organisation and by Sawbridgeworth Town Council that group organised a number of events, most noteworthy an exhibition held in the autumn of 2015. This inspired a number of us to branch out into more general local history, researching, collecting, recording and preserving the heritage of our town and the surrounding area. At the time of writing (February 2017) the group is still finding its feet but has identified a number of projects it wants to work on. We meet once a month, usually on the last Thursday of every month.

We are supported by but independent of our Town Council,
Stortford Museum and County Archives.
