Welcome to the Bidford and District History Society.

  • Our Society was formed in 2006 for enjoyment by those who take an interest in the history of South Warwickshire and beyond. We sustain a membership of over 100 interested members, due to our varied, lively and compelling range of guest speakers, many renowned leaders in their field. Members and visitors are made very welcome at our meetings.

    We meet on the third Friday of the month at 7.30pm in the Crawford Hall, Salford Road,  Bidford-on-Avon, B50 4EZ

    Our Research Group has published landmark 20th Century social histories concerning Bidford and the surrounding area. Our Group provides the opportunity to take part in research, either as part of one of our formal groups or to pursue personal interests.

    Here on the website we signpost the history of Bidford from Warwickshire County Archeology and academic studies. Under personal stories we have compiled Oral History from people who lived in Bidford during the C20th. Our Recent  Publications include books from our Research Group,which can be purchased and e-publications such as a trip down the High Street of 100 years ago.

    Learn about Bidford from our History Trail, go to Recent Publications tab to download a copy, suitable for print or use on a tablet device.

    If you are interested in history and want to learn more about the past, do come and join us to hear wonderful stories of great people and events.
