Tintinhull Local History Group

Tintinhull Local History Group promotes an interest in Local History and provides a forum for that interest, engaging in both social and research projects.

About the Group

The Tintinhull Local History Group (TLHG) was founded by an enthusiastic team of villagers in 2005. It obtained a £25,000 Heritage Lottery grant which enabled the purchase of IT and other equipment plus specialist advice & services. All of this
contributed to TLHG’s early success.

The Group has a social side but primarily researches different aspects of our parish history. The Group holds evening meetings September through to April with a regular attendance of around 30 members. Meetings include illustrated talks and demonstrations and on special occasions also host historic plays and exhibitions.

You don’t know how far you have progressed!
