Kenton Past and Present

Our society was formed in 2007 to provide a forum to investigate the local history of Kenton Parish and the surrounding area. Our aims are to promote an interest and extend knowledge of Kenton, its history, buildings, monuments, community life, and all aspects of historic interest, by arranging talks, exhibitions, visits and research projects. 

Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of alternate months at 7.30pm. at Kenton Victory Hall. There is usually a talk by a local historian followed by a question and answer session. For details of this year’s programme please click here.

New members are always welcome. You do not have to live in Kenton to become a member, just to have an interest in its history. If you wish to join you can download a membership form here or come along to a meeting and join on the evening. Annual membership fees are £12.50 per adult, payable in January.  Non-members are very welcome to attend individual meetings for an admission charge of £5.
