Sharnbrook Local History Group was founded in 2006 as part of the Learning for Pleasure Initiative within the village. The Group normally meets fortnightly on Wednesday afternoons during the Autumn and Spring Terms at the Methodist Church in Park Lane, Sharnbrook. The Summer term is used for continuing the work on specific research projects.

Our programme will normally consist of a series of talks, regular visits to places of local interest and tackling the research projects where data is collected and analysed, results are published and historical records/photographs are archived. Spring term 2024 starts w/b 8th January.
