Farthingstone History Society

Established in 2013, the Society was set up with the aim of gathering together in one place as much information about Farthingstone as possible. This includes houses, past and present villagers, land, events, Church and Chapel, School and Village Hall, public houses including The Kings Arms and previous and current businesses within the village.

We would encourage past and present residents and their relatives to get in touch with us if you have any information to share. We would welcome photographs relating to all of the categories mentioned above including aerial and street views, past and present. Meetings are held on particular topics from time to time and these will be advertised on the Farthingstone website. Or you may send your email details to Dorothy to be added to the mailing list.
