About Us

Hounslow and District History Society was formed in 1960. Meetings are held on the last Tuesday of each month from September to April (except December).

Meetings were normally held in the hall of United Reformed Church, on the corner of Chapel Road and Hanworth Road, Hounslow, near the Treaty Centre. Since the coronavirus pandemic began in the spring of 2020 we have been holding meetings from our homes using the ZOOM on-line conferencing facility, which the society now purchases annually. For this season (autumn 2022 to spring 2023) we will hold the first and last meetings (September ’22 and April ’23) at Hounslow United Reformed Church again, as in-person meetings. If this proves to be a success we may hold more meetings there in future seasons.

Annual Membership costs £12.00 per person, per calendar year, or £18.00 for couples and households; Associate Members who do not normally expect to attend the society’s meetings but will receive its mailings and journal can pay £6.00 yearly.

The Honeslaw Chronicle is published twice a year in the Spring and in the Autumn and is sent to all members. Non-members are welcome to attend meetings for a visitors fee of £2.00.

Archives and Local History Research: the society does not hold historic archives (other than its own minutes and papers), instead, its members and officers direct prospective donors or enquirers to the Archives and Local Collections of Hounslow’s Library Service, to which they have also contributed over many years.
