Welcome to the Amersham Society

The Society aims to foster a greater awareness of the amenities and heritage of the Old Town of Amersham and to encourage conservation and sensitive enhancement. As the future of such small market towns comes under an increasing variety of threats, it acts as a watchdog, a forum for discussion and an advocate on behalf of its members. It is a non-political organisation, with membership open to everyone who shares our desire to make the town attractive to residents and visitors.

The Amersham Society started its life around a successful campaign to protect Shardeloes House from demolition in 1956. Around 20 years later the Society became the driving force behind attempts to set up a Museum in the town. Find out more about the history of the Society by visiting our Publications page.

In 2019 the Society continues promoting the best options for the town and the community. With the building of HS2 and the impending development of the Local Plan there is much to keep the Society busy. During the winter months the Society organises lectures at present in the Kings Chapel, often on subjects of local interest, and also an annual summer outing.
