Are you interested in finding out more about Wimbledon in general, or more specifically your particular ward, street or home? If so, the Local History Group will be of interest to you. The group was using the Museum for its meetings but will not be able to use this facility until the refurbishment is finished but we are still active. If you would like to attend or want more details please contact us at the email address below

The Local History Group was set up in 1971 to locate and list historical records of Wimbledon and to encourage new research. The Group is soon to celebrate its 50th anniversary. It will come as little surprise that the notes and minutes amassed during this time are a goldmine of unpublished local information and data. We plan to make this invaluable body of knowledge more accessible in the future.
