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 is as follows:

13 December 2022 - Christmas Drinks in the Chequer


21 February: Churchill's Secret Army: Gilly Halcrow

21 March: Members' evening

25 April: Unexplained mysteries and cover ups: Andy Thomas

23 May: AGM

19 September: The Ashdown Forest: Martin Berry

24 October: Charles II in Sussex: Helen Poole

21 November: ENSA: Delia Taylor


​​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.
