Warsash is a small village on the south coast of England in the county of Hampshire.

The Warsash Local History Society was formed in 1998 to foster interest in the history of Warsash and its close neighbour Hook. We are building a permanent historical archive to be maintained for future generations, and encourage and support new research projects.

The Society holds regular meetings with guest speakers, and provides a social gathering for people interested in all aspects of history.

In May 2011 the Society opened the Warsash Heritage Centre (located in Shore Road, Warsash) as a permanant home for our archive and as a research centre for its users.

Since its formation the Society has been building a comprehensive archive of photographs, maps, documents and artifacts. We are currently undertaking a major cataloging programme, the results of which will be published on the Web site.

Many of the photographs in the collection can be reproduced for a small fee. Please contact us for more information.

We have an active research group engaged in projects spanning many aspects of the history of Warsash and Hook. Past projects have included the River Hamble, the C14 chapel at Hook, and the artist James Gray.

Research findings are published in our annual newsletter, along with other stories and recollections (back issues are available for purchase). Larger research projects are published in books and booklets produced by our members.

If you need help with your own research project then you will soon be able to visit our research pages for advice and guidance.
