About Us


The Whilton Local History Society was formed in order to share, encourage and promote interest in the fascinating local history of the parish of Whilton and its surrounding area.


The group meets regularly throughout the year and arranges outings to local venues with a link to Whilton's history.


The group has been supported generously by the Heritage Lottery Fund which has made this website and all of the celebrations for Captain Henry Reynolds VC, MC possible.
