Founded 2018

The Aldermaston History Group was founded in February 2018 with funds left over from the village celebrations for the Queen’s 90th birthday. As part of these celebrations a group of enthusiasts had put together an exhibition of local history in the Parish Hall in June 2017 and they all agreed that the leftover funds should support a project to create a village digital archive. The rest, as they say, is HISTORY!

Aldermaston History Online Website

The first major project undertaken by the Group was to secure a Heritage Lottery Fund grant for £10,000 to build a website. We were successful and won the grant in February 2019 and the website went live in September 2019.

The website remains a major on-going project for the group.
