Historical Society

Woodchester Historical Society

Woodchester Historical Society meets approximately 4 times a year, mainly in the Undercroft of St Mary’s Church. We are a small group of people and would be happy to welcome new members. It is not necessary to know anything about the history of Woodchester to join us.

We continue to work towards computerising village records, censuses, baptisms, marriages, burials etc., building up a database of village residents mainly in the nineteenth century and supporting the Village Archive. See Woodchester Census and Woodchester Registers.

We have prepared leaflets of self guided walks around both North and South Woodchester with an historical theme which can be purchased for a nominal sum. For further information contact: barbara.warnes1@gmail.com or 01453 872181

The society has an archive of material in the Village Hall which is available for anyone to study. To arrange a visit, contact our archivist, Jenny Bernard, on 01453 872881. Below are links to what is stored.
