Lodsworth Heritage Society

The Society was formed in 2010 by a group of Lodsworth parishioners who were keen that the considerable volume of historic documents, scrap books, photographs, maps, etc. which resided in private hands were not lost to the community and were more readily available for study. The Society’s objectives are to:

  • Bring together those interested in Lodsworth’s heritage
  • Hold events for villagers and others with an interest in our heritage
  • Record for posterity the memories of local people
  • Ensure our parish’s historical records are preserved and available for study
  • Research aspects of our heritage

We have achieved a great deal so far:

  • Held regular, extremely well attended, both educational and enjoyable events about the history of our parish
  • Completed research into Lodsworth’s people, properties, an amazing range of past businesses, our church, chapels and clergy, our graveyard, history of sport in our community, etc
  • Established and catalogued a comprehensive community archive which will soon be sited in purpose-built space in our village hall
  • Recorded the memories of long-term Lodsworth residents
  • Started a collection of photographs of present day inhabitants, with their families and pets in front of their properties

Lodsworth Heritage Society is a registered charity number XT29165.
