If you have an interest in local history then why not come along to our regular monthly meetings? We have a range of speakers on topics that generally have a bias towards Sheringham, North Norfolk or Norfolk county. For example subjects such as Repton and Sheringham Park, Early Man in North Norfolk and Norfolk and the Titanic Sinking have all been covered recently.

Meetings are on the first Wednesday of most months, normally starting at 7.00. with tea or coffee.

In addition to meetings at the Sheringham Museum, the group also holds a December social event. Also we arrange at least one visit each year  to a local site of historic interest.

However, meetings are currently suspended due to the coronavirus emergency but we hope to restart as soon as the Government has lifted the restriction on public gatherings. Our current plans for 2020/21 can be seen here.

As and when our plans change or become more concrete we will update this site.

This Group started as part of the Preservation Society, chaired by Mike Felmingham which was responsible for the ‘Heritage Walk’ and Blue Plaques around the town.

For the past few years , under the guidance of Hugh Bradbury, the SHG has met at the Sheringham Museum at the Mo, on the seafront.

Everyone is welcome, local residents and visitors to Sheringham alike.

Information about forthcoming topics and speakers can be found on the EVENTS page.

To give a flavour of our meetings, topics covered during the past several months are listed on the ARCHIVE page.
