About The Blakeney Area Historical Society (BAHS)

The Blakeney Area Historical Society (BAHS) was established in 1990 as the 'Blakeney History Group' but changed its name later to reflect the wider geographical membership and interest in this part of North Norfolk. The main aims of the society are:

  • to study the history of the Blakeney Haven (covering the parishes of Blakeney, Cley, Morston, Salthouse and Wiveton) and adjacent hinterland
  • to make available the results of such studies
  • to collect documents and other records relating to the area and make them available
  • to encourage members and others to take an active interest in local history

As an active society with over 130 active members the Society holds around eight regular events/lectures each year, organises visits and publishes an occasional journal, The Glaven Historian. Members also receive regular newsletters. We also organise regular outings and walks. Our events are open to all and attendance is typically over 40 members and visitors.

In 2003 the BAHS opened a History Centre at the rear of the Village Hall in Blakeney. This resource centre caters for many interests from those who are just curious about the people, buildings and coastline around Blakeney Haven and inland along the Lower Glaven Valley or have family connections and memories of the area, to others with a more serious interest in local history.

A Guest Book is available for website visitors, but please note the Society’s policy before posting a message.
