Welcome to the Whittlesford Society Website

      The Whittlesford Society was founded in 1975 to:

         - Stimulate public interest in the village and its environs
         - Promote high standards of planning and architecture
         - Sec
ure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of features   
           of public or historic interest in the village and adjacent areas
Our membership is currently about 360 households. Regular activities include guided walks, meetings with expert guest speakers and exhibitions of photographs, memorabilia and archaeological finds. Our journal, 'Whither Whittlesford', is published at least twice a year and focuses on village events, local, social and natural history. Other publications dealing with specific aspects of village history are also available. See the Publications section for details.
