Welcome

Welcome to Molesey Local History Society

East and West Molesey (‘Molesey’ for short) lie south of the River Thames close to Hampton Court Palace in North East Surrey (see map). The Mole and Ember rivers flow through Molesey before joining the Thames. All three rivers have played an important part in shaping the area’s rich history.

The main aim of the Society is to awaken and foster an interest in the history of Molesey. We hold a wide variety of talks at venues around Molesey, including Hampton Court Palace.

We conduct our own research and try to hold at least one meeting a year based on work carried out by members.  In 2019, we researched the flood alleviation scheme after the Great Flood of 1968. During 2020, all of our meetings were suspended although, we did hold some ‘Zoom’ presentations, details of which can be found under ‘Past Events’.

A regular newsletter keeps our members informed of all our forthcoming events as well as giving other interesting information about our local history.

We would be delighted to hear from anyone with an interest in the history of Molesey. You can get in touch by clicking contact us.
