About Us

The Farnham and District Museum Society is concerned with the History, Archaeology, Natural History and other matters of interest in Farnham and the surrounding area. It has been in existence for well over 40 years and during this time has provided support for the Museum of Farnham as well as providing information for the local community.

A major part of the activities of the Society is the series of talks run twice monthly through the winter months.


The Society also runs series of seminars on local subjects which are held at Farnham Museum.


The Society publishes a quarterly Journal containing articles covering the main areas of interest. As well as input by members, it also includes articles written by well-known specialists in their various fields. The journal is provided free to all members of the society.

The Society also publishes longer reports and books relating to the Farnham area. In the past, subjects have included the nearby Roman town of Neatham, Saxon Farnham, Farnham Castle, Waverley Abbey, and Farnham in the Civil War. Recent publications have been made possible by a generous bequest to the Society by Miss Leni Grosset.

Should you wish to join the society then please see details on the membership page.
