Lynsted with Kingsdown Society was set up in 2003 to promote our Parish through speakers, visits, research projects and social events that reflect the interests of our Members and our communities. We continue to explore these themes - sharing our research, findings and contributions through this web site, at local events, and through occasional publications.

This web-site acts as our public archive and an important channel of communication with anyone who shares our interest in the communities in and around Lynsted and Kingsdown, past and present. There is a "search" box at the bottom of this page.

As you browse the stories, snapshots and events, if you have any questions, personal recollections or other contributions and suggestions please do contact us (you will find the link at the top-right of every page you visit). We are keen to include anything, small or large, single items or collections/albums that shed light on how today's community has developed and changed over the years.

Our records contain a wide range of material from:

Our on-line images are generally reduced versions of the original. Copies of originals can be requested.
