The Hundred Parishes Society


This section of the website contains a series of articles about various aspects of The Hundred Parishes.

The first group of articles relate to the Hundred Parishes as a whole and to The Hundred Parishes Society.

Thereafter, the articles encompass elements of the natural world, history and heritage that contribute towards the special character of the Hundred Parishes. Sometimes, they will include information that is also available elsewhere on the website, for example within introductions to individual parishes or people,

The index is a mix of UPPER and lower case: each article is included in the Index just once in CAPITAL LETTERS while subsidiary elements of an article are indexed in lower case. Clicking on either will take you to the same article. So, to read all articles, you need to select only the items in capital letters

Most articles started life as one of the Society’s monthly emails to Society members. Copies of most, sometimes abbreviated, were also submitted to local parish magazines. Most articles offer just an introduction to a subject.

Member emails have been sent each month since 2014. As new subjects are covered, or old ones extended, this Articles section of the website will be updated.

All articles are reviewed by the Society’s trustees prior to publication. Great care is taken to ensure that each article is accurate but errors may slip through from time to time. The trustees would be pleased to consider any suggestions for correction or improvement. The Society’s ethos is all about sharing knowledge, so the trustees would welcome draft articles on any suitable subject.
