St. Neots Local History Society

Welcome to the St. Neots Local History Society

The St. Neots Local History Society, founded in 1981, exists to promote interest in the rich and varied history of the town of St. Neots and the surrounding area through monthly meetings, research and summer outings. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the history of this town, or in local history generally. Meetings are held usually on the first Friday of each month at 7.30 pm, to which visitors are welcome (for a small fee). During the summer we organise excursions to places of historical interest within the locality and sometimes further afield, led by members of the Society or by local experts. Historical information is collected and our archives are held in the St Neots Library. Several plaques to local celebrities have been erected throughout the town. The Society publishes a regular magazine which contains interesting articles on local history.


Our annual membership subscription is just £15. Membership is always available at our meetings, alternatively see our 'Join the Society' page.


We still have a few places left on our August walk around 'Merrie Old Eynesbury', at £5 a ticket. Please contact us if interested.

Our latest magazine 115, a special tribute to the late Sue Jarrett,  is still available price £5 (free to members), as we have had some more printed, and can be obtained:

a) at our meetings

b) from St Neots Museum

c) directly from us (see Contact Us, please add £2 postage and packing if outside St Neots)
