About Us

Shepherdswell & Coldred History Society was formed in May 2014.

We are a heritage group that collects information and archives for the village of Shepherdswell, near Dover, along with the neighbouring village of Coldred.

We have an increasing number of archives that include several hundred local images and photographs, which we have copies of in original and digital formats. To add to our archives we have been starting to collate oral history interviews with some of the local residents, who have lived in the area for many years.

It is an informal group of current and past residents who are interested in the long and varied history of the area, from the Bronze Age to the Second World War, and everything else in between.

We meet regularly for informal meetings, presentations and expert talks, guided walks and exhibitions.

Whether you’re interested the history of your house or the much bigger picture of the villages throughout time, we have something to interest everyone.
