Landor (Local History) Society



The Society is a focus for those who wish to learn more about the history of Rugeley and its surrounding parishes.  It was founded in 1953 and was named in honour of Walter Noble Landor, local and county historian, who became the Society’s first President.

Our members are not necessarily experts, but are enthusiastic people with an interest in local history, a willingness to share what they learn and a desire to preserve our local heritage.  Some are able to be active in local research; others are content with attending our meetings.

The Society has published several booklets written by members.  It also has an ever expanding collection of local photographs, literature and ephemera.

Our monthly meetings normally include a guest speaker or, in the summer months, visits to local villages and other nearby places of interest.  The society also organises occasional short courses on historical subjects.  Details of our current programme can be found on our ‘PROGRAMME’ page.
