A celebration of local history
WHS was formed out out the interest created from the Wivelsfield History Study Group who collectively published ‘Wivelsfield: The History of A Wealden Parish in 1994 and edited by local professional historian Heather Warne. The book which is sadly no longer in print is available via local libraries and hopefully sections available on this website in the future.
