Horningtoft Heritage Society

The Heritage Society collects, records and exhibits genealogy, maps, photographs and social history of our village Horningtoft.
The Society marked the centenary of the First World War by discovering the impact the war had on our village. An exhibition in 2014 told the story of those who enlisted, the survivors, those who died, and those who were left to cope at home.
In 2016 the members are exhibiting archives from the village around 1800
