WELCOME TO THE CHRISTCHURCH HISTORY SOCIETY

The Society organises ten evening meetings a year, on topics usually involving local history. It organises visits and guided walks and attends community events.

The Society is the custodian of the Christchurch Archive, some 20,000 documents, photos and maps, on which a group of volunteers carry out research. The archive is constantly being extended.  
With an extensive archive of books, old documents and photographs, as well as access to most copies of the local newspapers from 1855 to 1983, we can help you to learn more about the people, events and places that have created the ancient town of Christchurch and Christchurch Borough that we know today. We have a programme of ten monthly talks, September to June, at Christchurch Junior School, Clarendon Road, Christchurch: Members - £2.00. Visitors - £5.00.
