Home Cogenhoe & Whiston Heritage Society

Welcome to the Cogenhoe & Whiston Heritage Society

The Society’s objective is to study, record and stimulate interest in the history and heritage of the two villages situated between the A45 and the A428 roads a few miles east of Northampton,

Membership of the society is open to anyone who shares our aims and costs £8 per year (£14 family).

 Monthly open meetings are held with interesting and engaging speakers on our heritage and the society has a number of members who also give talks on subjects of interest. See programme. Meetings are usually held on the second Wednesday of the month at Cogenhoe Village Hall. Entry to open meetings is £3 for members and £4 for non-members.

Forthcoming meetings

Our next presentation will be on 27 January at 7:30pm and from February we will revert to our traditional meeting date on the second Wednesday of the month.
