Welcome to Codicote Local History Society

  We are proud of our heritage. As a local group we are keen to collate, present and
  promote knowledge and interest about the Codicote area and the people who lived and
  worked here over the centuries. We want to explore what life was like, to find out about the
  work that people did, and to see how they spent their time - their joys, their pastimes and
  their toils. 

  Our history society was founded back in 1980, not so long ago, but quite different too!  In
  2022 we finally managed to celebrate our 40th anniversary.  Not a case of poor counting,
  but rather a reflection of the impact of Covid, that shook our daily lives and community, just
  like everywhere else.

  We hold a monthly programme of talks and outings. Talks take place on the 2nd Tuesday
  of the month from September to May
in the
Peace Memorial Hall, High Street, Codicote,
  starting at 8pm. Outings to local historical sites or settlements take place on evenings in
  June and July at a similar time of the month. You can find details of upcoming activities in
Programme 2023-24.

  We also include a walk around the parish boundary at the time of the 1st May Bank Holiday
  Monday, and hold exhibitions in the Peace Memorial Hall in April and at the Village Day in
  mid-July. The April local history exhibition displays items, activities and photos about the
  Codicote area.

  The society also has a well-stocked lending library for member use, including books,
  archives, microfilms, and microfiches of historic documents.  We also have a growing
  number of Publications.

  Would you like to join or find out more?  We currently have about 30 members,
  and we're always pleased to welcome everyone who is interested in Codicote and its
  surroundings. If you'd like more information please contact:  Nicholas Maddex,
  Chairman, tel: 01438-821849,  e: nkmaddex@btinternet.com .
