Welcome to Charmouth Local History Society

The Charmouth Local History Society

What Charmouth has been like in the past?

Who lived here?

Why did they come here?

How did they live?

What did they do?

The society has a large collection of documents, photographs and objects which have been donated to us. These show that our relatively small village has a very wide and rich history, ranging from visits by royalty or the author Jane Austen to interesting old characters, charities, amazing buildings and even the last duel in England!

We want to use this collection to interest and intrigue people of all ages who live in Charmouth or have connections with the local area or are visitors to Charmouth.
