About us

Willington Local History Group (WLHG) exists to promote interest in the history of the Bedfordshire village of Willington and of the surrounding area. What we do We host a programme of talks, arrange visits to places of historic interest and hold an archive of previous talks, historical documents and photographs. Some of our members volunteer at the National Trust Tudor Dovecote and Stables in the village. When we meet Unless otherwise advertised by email, we normally hold meetings at 7.30 pm in the Methodist Church in Willington.
