The Southwater Local History Group was formed in September 2003. Its aim is to amass an archive of material relating to the origins and development of the area we now call Southwater, from the earliest times to the present day.

The archive is to be a community resource and therefore available to anyone for viewing, on request. (Click on the Archive link to see what has been compiled so far)

We are a small friendly Group and would be delighted to welcome new members. It would also be very nice to hear from anyone who would be willing to share with us their own research work, memories, stories, photographs, postcards, etc in fact, anything that sheds light on the history of the village.

Our meetings are held at 7.30pm on the first Monday of each month in the Beeson House, Lintot Square. If you would like further information or just want to pass on an item of interest, our contact details are given below. We look forward to hearing from you.
