PRESERVING HARLINGTON'S HISTORY

The Harlington Heritage Trust was founded in 1981 with the purpose of preserving the rich heritage of this picturesque and beautiful village nestling in the chalklands of South Bedfordshire.

With a membership of nearly 200, we have now opened our Heritage Centre (funded by the National Lottery Fund) which houses our extensive archives, photographs and other historical items that have been collected during our 40 year existence.

During the year we organise a range of activities including walks,talks, excursions and exhibitions relating to Harlington and the surrounding area.

A Newsletter is published quarterly for members which contains news, articles, photographs and archives.

Membership Fees are currently £6 for individuals, £7 for families and £10 for postal membership.
