About the Society
The Society is concerned with the history of the London Borough of Merton, England. It undertakes research and publishes books and booklets on the history of Merton, Mitcham and Morden. Founded in 1951 as the Merton & Morden Historical Society, it has always had a respected reputation for its publications.
Membership at present costs £12 a year (£5 for full-time students). Members receive the Society’s quarterly Bulletin, and are entitled to 20% discount on the Society’s publications.
The Society organises monthly lectures and talks of local historical interest during the winter months and arranges visits and local historical guided walks during the summer.
It also runs regular Workshop sessions to share current research.
Meetings are informal and do not pre-suppose a special knowledge of history, local or national.
Meetings and visits organised by the Society are suspended until further notice.
Meanwhile, we will be displaying a LINK OF THE MONTH to a virtual exhibition or talk.
To celebrate the launch of Medieval Morden: The Manorial Economy, this month we have a couple of short videos on The Luttrell Psalter with its wonderful illustrations of everyday life in the 14th century. The first is a brief overview, the second a re-enactment of some of the scenes of daily life on the manor.
