Welcome

…to the Betley Local History Society’s website. In addition to the information that you can access here we organise regular monthly meetings, usually on the last Thursday of each month (except December) - take a look at our ‘Programme of Events’ in the menu to see what’s coming up.

Our events include:

  • Talks on topics of local historical interest or on wider issues relating to the village

  • Visits to various sites, landscapes, properties, buildings, record offices, archives etc.

  • Local research projects about Betley village and life in and around Betley in bygone times

We would like to involve as many local researchers and speakers as possible in our activities - so please do get in touch using the contact link if you’d like to find out more.
