All scheduled presentations and meetings for 2020 have been cancelled due to COVID-19.

However the committee are still holding regular online meetings in order to maintain the progress of some longer term projects such as Three Barrows Down.

We will also be issuing regular newsletters in order to keep you up-to-date on any developments. These can be viewed on our Facebook page (@shephissoc) or if you become a member you will receive them direct to your in-box.


Welcome to the Shepherdswell & Coldred History Society.

Through this site you will be taken on a journey to our past, learning how events have shaped the people of this area and how the people have shaped the area.

History is a very fluid subject and so we will be constantly updating the information on this site as we learn more. We also hope to add both audio and visual recordings.

The society normally holds monthly meetings and regular talks at Shepherdswell Village Hall.

Details of our postponed 2020 talks and presentations are posted on this web site so please check regularly for more information.

If you would like to become a member of S&CHS just click here or come along to any of our monthly meetings in the Village Hall.

All are welcome.

 Our thanks to Dover District Council for the support it has given to the Society over the past few years which has greatly assisted our various projects as well as our ability to share the history of the village with the whole community.
