Welcome to the website of the Stapleford History Society

Stapleford History Society was formed with the aim of promoting public interest in local heritage. The group meets on alternate months throughout the year to hear a range of talks of local and more general historical interest.

A comprehensive archive of material, covering diverse aspects of village life during the earlier part of the 20th century, was kindly donated to the Society. A sub group of members regularly meet with the aim of cataloguing, and digitising, all of the data.
