Welcome to the Chingford Historical Society

The Chingford Historical Society has been established over 70 years. It is a registered charity (No 281623) and is governed by a committee elected by its members at Annual General Meetings. We organise meetings each month  and visits to places of historical interest. We publish a bi-annual newsletter. Local history research is carried out and books and newsletters about Chingford's past are on sale.  

Our meetings are now held at a new venue, the Chingford C of E Primary School, Cambridge Road, Chingford, E4 7BP at 7.30.p.m. on the second or mostly third Thursday of each month from September until July inclusive. Talks on local and general history are illustrated and there is an interval where refreshments can be bought. Non-members are welcome to attend for a fee of £3 payable at the door.
