The Society was formed in 1977 by Robert Jenkins and Allan Lloyd, with the purpose of undertaking research into and recording the history of Kington. It was also seen as an opportunity to provide  information for those interested in the history of Kington, its people and the surrounding area. The Society produces an annual journal, free to members, as well as other publications of local interest. We invite you to browse the site and discover what we get up to and how we may be able to help you with your research.

Find us at Kington Museum, Mill Street, Kington HR5 3AL. If you are searching for information about local events, places or people, History Society staff at the museum will be happy to search their database and extensive library of local records on your behalf. An initial research fee of £5 will help cover the Society’s costs. Do drop in, you’ll be made most welcome.

This website is no longer being updated. 

At the present time (spring / summer 2020) Kington History Society is in the process of merging with the Kington Museum: after this merger we will have formed a new organisation, the Kington Museum and History Society and have a super new website.
