Home Cogenhoe & Whiston Heritage Society

Welcome to the Cogenhoe & Whiston Heritage Society

The Society’s objective is to study, record and stimulate interest in the history and heritage of the two villages situated between the A45 and the A428 roads a few miles east of Northampton,

Membership of the society is open to anyone who shares our aims and costs £8 per year (£14 family).

 Monthly open meetings are held with interesting and engaging speakers on our heritage and the society has a number of members who also give talks on subjects of interest. See the programme here. Meetings are usually held on the second Wednesday of the month at Cogenhoe Village Hall. Entry to open meetings is £3 for members and £4 for non-members.

Rather moribund since 2014, the Green Plaque project did get a major fillip in 20187. We applied for a grant from SNC under the New Homes Bonus and and an award to cover 11 plaques was granted.
