About Us

This is a voluntary project which has developed from the great interest and enthusiasm in the history of their locality emanating from the residents and ex-residents of Hale, Upper Hale, and other nearby hamlets and villages, to the north and east of Farnham in Surrey.  

Aside from the local history, the Project also takes an interest in current events in the local area.

The Project is open to anyone who is interested in this part of Surrey. 

Our Work

This project is open to YOU - if there is any aspect of local history in the area that you would like to research or are already researching - make yourself known to us - you may find research is already in progress - if not or you are a beginner you will get help and guidance. 

Stories, reminiscences, and researches - people or places - if it is connected with Hale and the surrounding hamlets and villages, it is of interest to the Project.
