Welcome to the website of Chalford Parish Local History Group, which is designed to provide information on our meetings, on other local history events in the area and to be a source of general information about the history of the Chalford Parish.

The Group was formally constituted in September 2016 after a series of very successful meetings had been held beginning in May of that year.  We currently have around 50 members and non-members are welcome at all our meetings. 



We also have a Facebook Group here which anyone is welcome to join, with currently just under 700 members.  This is a private Group so you will need to join it to see posts.



This website continues to evolve as we add new material so do keep returning or try following some of the links at the top of the page.
