Benfleet and District Historical Society

The Society was started in 1955 and since then has enjoyed a successful series of regular monthly meetings (usually during the winter months) covering historical matters both local and national.

During the summer months our Outings Secretary arranges visits for members to local historical sites and buildings. These can be booked in advance at the AGM. If trips are fully booked we hold a Waiting List to fill spaces that may arise during the year.

The Dutch Cottage on Canvey Island will be open for the 2024 Season on Sundays 12th May - 15th September, Wednesdays 5th June - 11th September, from 1.p.m to 4.p.m. - please contact Curator for more details

The web site gives details of our Meetings for the year. These are held at Richmond Hall in Benfleet.
