Wisborough Green History Society

The History Group grew out of the Wisborough Green Trust, an organisation that has been fairly dormant since the nineties. Its aim is to record and publish village history. The Society is a small group of people who enjoy talking about and researching the history of the village. Several members are life-long residents, others have lived in the village for many years and all have interesting memories and anecdotes of bygone years. The Society meets on the second Tuesday of every month in the Village Hall committee room at 10.30 – new members are always welcome. For further information, please contact Sue Killingbeck, Secretary, on 01403 700704.

The following articles have been written by local historian, Richard Bairstow, and are reproduced here with his kind permission.
