Maresfield Historical Society
The purpose of the Maresfield Historical Society is to promote and explore the heritage of the village and surrounding area with regular talks, displays, guided walks, research projects, liaison with the local school and maintenance of an archive of local material.
We meet about nine times a year, usually on a Tuesday in Maresfield Village Hall, and our events are open to both members and non-members of the Society. We are a small and enthusiastic group and have enjoyed talks on a range of topics. Our current programme for 2023/24 is as follows:
26th September The Ashdown Forest by Martin Berry
24th October The History of Bonners and the development of beekeeping in the centre of historic Maresfield' by Toni and Tony Birkbeck
21st November ENSA (Entertainments National Service Assoc.) by Delia Taylor
December Christmas Drinks in The Chequers (dtbc )
20th February ’Sussex Witches’ by Chris Horlock
19th March ‘War Graves’ by Ian Everest
23rd April ‘Knowl House’ by Gilly Halcrow
All talks start at 8 pm in Maresfield Village Hall and last approximately 1 hour, followed by tea and biscuits.
Annual membership of the Society costs £15 per family and £10 per individual.
Non-members, who are always very welcome, pay £3 per visit.
