Thanks for joining us. We are a volunteer group attempting to collate local social and family history. We would love to hear from you if you can assist in any way.

That might be naming faces in pictures, recalling events of yesteryear, helping with cataloguing or contributing items of the past for the future. Please join us at our next meeting – normally the third (or sometimes 4th) Thursday each month in Terling All Saints’ Church.

For more information email us on HistoricTerling@gmail.com

The next Historic Terling group meeting will be in Terling Church at
2.30pm on Thursday 22nd June 2023
All welcome – no special knowledge needed – just an interest in history.

About 50 Terling residents interested in history enjoyed an evening event on 25th September 2021 when the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) came to tell us of their work. More pictures and information on our Events page.
Thanks to Neil Richardson from the CWGC and to the attendees who donated £220 to the CWGC charity. Thanks too for all the hard work done for the evening by members of the Historic Terling Group.

Many locals worked at Marconi -what did you do there or perhaps your family had links with Marconi’s work on the estate back in the 1900s? Send us a note on the contacts page on this website or email your notes to historicterling@gmail.com.

See our page for Terling United Reformed Chapel historic record images. Fascinating reading.
