Welcome to the Pulford & Poulton Local History Group

From its beginning in 2000 the History Group has maintained a programme of monthly talks from guest speakers on a host of local history topics. Although we have not been able to continue our full programme during the pandemic we restarted talks in October, 2021.

Visits to local places of interest also feature in the group’s programme.

The group manages an archive available to members of local historical documents and photographs that have been donated by local people.

The local history group is involved in encouraging research into the history of Cheshire, and spreading the enjoyment of knowing about it, especially as it applies to Pulford and Poulton. This website gives an introduction to this history from the earliest days to the present.
