Maresfield Historical Society

The purpose of Maresfield Historical Society is to promote and explore the heritage of the village and surrounding areas 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 2022 is as follows:

25th October - David Miller  ‘Archaeological Excavations of Bridge Farm in Barcombe'

​​All talks start at 8pm in Maresfield Village Hall and last apprximately 1 hour, followed by tea and biscuits.
