The Silver End Heritage Society was set up as a direct result of the findings of the consultation conducted in summer and autumn 2009 and included in the Parish Plan published 2011. The survey showed that residents are proud of the village heritage, and the ideals of the Critall family, and want projects to promote the history of Silver End.
The society was formed by people who care about Silver End, and its heritage, and want to record and promote its international architectural importance and its social and industrial history. It holds events throughout the year including talks, diccussions and illustrated presentatons.
During 2013, the focus of the society was a Heritage Lottery funded project, "Silver End Stories" aimed at recording the memories, reminiscences and stories of current and former inhabitants, in particular, those who lived or worked in the village in its early days.
The Heritage Centre in the Village Hall is open to everyone 10.30 - 12.30 on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays in the month. Members also have access on the second Friday morning each month.
