Subject to the government relaxing the Covid-19 restrictions, we intend to commence our monthly meetings from 17th September 2021. However, this will be in the new location of Whitefriars School, Boughton Drive, Rushden, NN10 9HX, using the entrance opposite Drayton Close.

Rushden & District History Society was formed early in 1991. It aims to encourage and facilitate the study and preservation of Northamptonshire history.

The society is run by a committee of up to twelve, elected annually at the Annual General Meeting (A.G.M.).

Subscriptions are £6 for an individual, and £9 for family membership. We welcome visitors to our meetings at a cost of £2.50 at the door. Members pay £1.50. Membership forms may be obtained by clicking here .

The Rushden Research Group is part of the society and created the Hearts & Soles heritage website at and a copy is held on a touch screen terminal at Rushden Museum.
