Welcome to the website of the Local History Society, where we invite you to share and enjoy photos, memories and historical research about the people and places that make up Harpenden. To view, just browse and open the categories listed on the left, or see What’s New.

This is a Community Archive website to which anyone can contribute:

COMMENTS can be added at the foot of existing pages - there is no need to register to do so.

* Contributions and Comments are checked by the Editors before publication, which may take some time if research is involved. We apologise for any delay.

CONTRIBUTIONS of new pages would be most welcome – it is easy to Register for this, see “How to Explore and Contribute”. 

You can SEARCH for topics on the site, by using the 'search' box in the banner at the top of the screen, or the Site Map in the grey bar at the bottom of the screen.  However, this website does not contain all the information in our extensive archives, so please contact us with other enquiries or information to add.

Please contact us if you would like to make use of the Society’s archives at the Local History Centre for information or ideas for material to add to the website - there is plenty more that can be added to this website. However, during the Pandemic, access is very limited.

We hope very much that you enjoy your visit and may consider joining the Society.
