The Society was formed in 1983 by a small group of people interested in the
local history of the area.
Current membership is about one hundred members.
We organise a programme of talks from September to May and visits to places of interest during the summer months. Our yearly programme and membership runs from our Annual General Meeting held in March.
Several members carry out research into various aspects of local history, often resulting in the publication of books or papers - see Local History Publications - and have delivered talks on a number of occasions.
Guided tours of Oundle can also be arranged for groups by arrangement. These are often combined with a visit to Oundle Museum.
Oundle Historical Society is a member of The British Association for Local History and The Northamptonshire Association for Local History.
The annual subscription - see Membership - covers free entry to talks non-member visitors, who are always welcome, pay £2. Coffee and biscuits are served.
