History of Abbots Langley Local History Society

The Abbots Langley Local History Society was founded in 1994 as the result of an initiative by the late Dennis Hubbard and the Parish Council.  Its objectives are to encourage interest in the recent and distant past history of the area, particularly the landscape, buildings and, of course, the people.  Members are encouraged to undertake individual research projects, and to record history as it is being made now by photographing and writing about significant events.

The Society now numbers some 170 enthusiastic individual members.  The main activities are a series of illustrated winter lectures, on topics of historical interest, held usually on the last Monday of each month in the very convivial surroundings of the Manor House Sports and Social Centre.   These meetings have  a pleasant, informal atmosphere, and members are invited to contribute by bringing interesting artefacts and making short presentations on items of interest.  In addition, the Society holds short guided summer walks around the village, and occasionally visits to places of interest are made.

The Society's twice-yearly Journal - written, edited and produced entirely by members - records and re-lives many facets of past life.
