Stanstead Abbotts Local History Society
We hold a great library of information on stanstead Abbotts and Saint Margarets. We have stories of villagers, some famous and some not so famous.
We have a full (almost) history of the village back to the iron age. There are articles
for those who want a light interesting read and more in-
We have photos of the past and the present. You are welcome to peruse the site and if you can’t find what you want then please ask. We are only too pleased to help but we do request that if you wish to use any item from our site you ask permission from the appropriate contributor.
We also have a book on the village written by Ron Dale. Ron recently received an award for his book and deservedly so. More information on the site.
We also accept articles and photos on the village so if you would like to contribute please contact us.
We now have a history of the men of the villages who gave their lives during World War 1.
This was researched by Terry and Glenis Collins and has given us a permanent record of the sacrifice that these men made.
It brings more detail to the names on the War Memorial as well as others who were not recorded.
