Heritage Group about

The Milborne Port History & Heritage Group was formed in 2016 after it became apparent that there was a wealth of material and local knowledge that was thus far relatively unrecorded. A meeting was advertised in the hope that volunteers would come forward who were willing to start the ball rolling and so the group began.

Our first open meeting was held in Milborne Port Library and was very well attended. Naomi Thorp spoke to us about her fascinating research on the men from the village who gave their lives in the First World War and are commemorated on the village War Memorial.

It quickly became clear that there was a genuine interest in local history and we have been holding regular talks and events since then.
