The Society was formed in 1985 by a small group of enthusiasts anxious to research and preserve the history of their locality. Our area of interest now covers the ancient parishes of Eynsford (including Crockenhill), Farningham and Lullingstone, and also Maplescombe.
Our aims are:
- To carry out historical studies on the local area, from documents and oral sources, and on the ground.
- To publish the results of the above studies.
- To collect and preserve either originals or copies of any documents related to the area, including books, newspaper cuttings, letters, maps, postcards, deeds, programmes and hand bills - in fact any physical record of the activities of the inhabitants of the area.
- To hold meetings for the presentation and discussion of historical topics, display of documentary and other materials, etc.
