The Chingford Historical Society has been established over 70 years. It is a registered charity No 281623 and is governed by a committee elected by its members at Annual General Meetings. We organise meetings during the winter on the third Thursday of each month and coach tours to places of historical interest in the summer. We publish a bi-annual newsletter. Local history research is carried out and books and newsletters about Chingford's past are on sale.
Our meetings are held at SS Peter and Paul Church on The Green, North Chingford at 7.30.p.m. on the third Thursday of each month from October till April inclusive. Talks on local and general history are illustrated and there is an interval where tea and biscuits can be obtained. Non-members are welcome to attend for a small fee payable at the door.
