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.
