Sevenoaks Historical Society
Web: www.sevenoakssociety.org.uk/society%20pages/historicalsociety.htmlThe Sevenoaks Historical Society was formed in 1996 from the History Section of The Sevenoaks Society. It is still in association with The Sevenoaks Society. It is an independent society registered as a separate charity. The reason for independence was so that it could belong to outside history organisations such as the Kent History Federation and the Kent Archaeological Society. The aims of the Society are to promote the study of history and interest in history, both local and general. The Sevenoaks Historical Society has at least nine meetings a year with speakers on various historical subjects on both local and general history. It organises tours to places of historical interest in this country and sometimes overseas. It also runs exhibitions and assists others to do the same where there is an historical element. It aims to encourage historical research and publication. It published its first book in 2004 on the history of religion in the Sevenoaks Area.
