Elham HistorIcal SOCIETyA History Research Group for Elham


An important role for the Historical Society is to preserve village documents from both the past and the present so that they will be available for future generations. These include records, the parish magazine, parish council minutes, and numerous photographs. Another project will be recording oral histories from residents of the village who have interesting memories to share.

The Society has launched an online database which gives historical details about people, properties and events throughout Elham's rich history.

There is also an opportunity for visitors to take the EHS Virtual Tour of Elham.

We have recently added a PDF document which details the Monumental Inscriptions within St. Mary's Church.

The "Why Is Elham Here?" project is now available on line here. This project was set up to try to determine from archaeological, geographical and archive resources why the village of Elham is here.
