About the Historical Society

The Hurstbourne Tarrant Historical Society is a group of people who are interested in the history of the village and surrounding area. The society was formally constituted in May 2010 and meets monthly with the exception of August, December and January. All meetings, except for outside visits, take place at Hurstbourne Tarrant Community Centre (SP11 0AX) . Please see the programme of events for full details of what is happening.

New members are always welcome. Also if you can contribute to the society archives in any way that would be much appreciated; we would love to hear from anyone who could loan or send us photographs, documents etc. that are associated with the villages of Hurstbourne Tarrant, Upton and the Hamlet of Ibthorpe. If you would like to join please contact any member of the committee or you can download and complete a Membership Application and pay by Standing Order if you wish.

The society has published "Hurstbourne Tarrant at War" - this 106 page document contains records of all who served in the first and second world wars, local reporting from the time and colour and black and white photographs. If you would like a copy, priced £5, please contact Andy Watson - details below. All profits will go to the St Peters Church, Hurstbourne Tarrant.
