Welcome to Wickham History Society

Wickham History Society is an active and friendly voluntary civic organisation founded in January 1960 that exists to:

  • Gather information about the history of Wickham and help make it available to all who are interested.
  • Promote the preservation of old buildings, monuments, records, maps and traditions of Wickham.
  • Foster interest in Wickham’s history and historical research through this website and through publications, and by arranging lectures, visits and exhibitions.

Upcoming Meetings


In February, we heard Dr Bob France’s talk Uppark: Fire & Restoration when he related the events of the Wednesday 30 August 1989, the challenges of fighting the conflagration, the devastation caused by the fire and the inspirational story of Uppark’s truly amazing restoration. You can read the meeting report here.

Due to the Coronavirus situation, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel Wickham History Society meetings for the remainder of the current programme (March, April and May).

The summer events and walks will go ahead should the situation improve.

The talks planned for March and April will be rescheduled for the 2020/2021 programme.

Do you have something to contribute to the society?
