The Horsmonden Village Sign Horsmonden Historical Society

The Society exists to provide a regular meeting point for members of the Horsmonden community who have an interest in local (and perhaps wider) history. The annual subscription is currently £15. 

The Society normally meets at Horsmonden Social Club on the fourth Thursday of the month at 19:45 for 20:00, although there is usually a three-month break over summer and a one-month break at Christmas.  Physical meetings are, of course, currently suspended. Attendance at meetings is entirely voluntary, and members may bring guests if they wish; a small charge (currently £3-00) will be made for each guest.  Coffee, tea and biscuits are offered after the meeting at a notional cost of 50p, although additional donations are always welcome ... 

The programme for 2019 was as follows :


War Memorial Plaque

The Social Club War Memorial Plaque, containing photographs of 40 of the Horsmonden WWI Fallen and first displayed in 1925, is now available online as an interactive facsimile, with links from each thumbnail image to a full-size image with informative caption and (where possible) a link to the relevant Commonwealth War Graves Commission record. Following the withdrawal by Google of Picasaweb, these images are now hosted locally and are fully zoomable — using the scroll-wheel to zoom in/out will re-sample the high-resolution original, thereby avoiding any loss of quality when zooming while at the same time reducing to a minimum the size of the resulting data transfer. The same technology is used to present the Marriott will and the Institute lease.
