The Tring and District Local History Society, is a charity organisation initiated in 1994, originally with the encouragement of the Tring Town Council.
The Society has flourished since its inception, providing a focus for the collection and dissemination of many aspects of Tring’s history. It hosts regular Speaker Evenings, with guest speakers on a myriad of interesting and informative local topics.
It also produces a Newsletter for members which not only keeps them informed of the Society’s initiatives and progress, but has also become a repository of memories and historic facts relating to the area.
Among its many achievements, the History Society successfully obtained consent to display the original Edward II Charter, which is normally kept in The National Archives at Kew, during the town’s 700 year celebration of its heritage.
One of the Societies key ambitions is to promote the Local History Museum as the collection centre for all historical artefacts, becoming the principal source for all research regarding the history of Tring and the local district. Donations of artifacts of historical value will be welcomed into our collections.
The Society has links to both local and national societies.
Membership is open to everyone, and new members are especially welcome.
