Moreton & District Local History Society

The society was founded in 1982 to promote the study of local history within Moreton-in-Marsh and the surrounding district, a countryside steeped in history.

Since its inception the society, with an average membership of 100, has carried out a programme of talks and visits, concentrating, as far as possible, on local villages and towns and the people who lived in them.

The committee has published two books, as well as a quarterly magazine (now sadly discontinued). 

Arrangements are under way for the society’s archives to be scanned so that information can be readily available to seekers after local or family information.

Our meetings are held in the Women’s Institute Hall, New Road, Moreton-in-Marsh, on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm unless otherwise stated. Visitors and potential new members will all find a welcome at our meetings.
