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 - currently £5). 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 £20. Membership is always available at our meetings, or alternatively, see our 'Join the Society' page.
Our latest magazine, issue 117, is now available price just £3, and can be obtained:
a) at our meetings
b) from St Neots Museum
c) directly from us (see Contact Us, please add £2.50 postage and packing if outside St Neots)
The monumental inscriptions booklet for Eaton Socon Cemetery and the burials booklet for St Mary's Eaton Socon Churchyard (both publications of the Eatons Community Association) are now available as free downloads from our St Neots Cemeteries page.
