Welcome to the Hartley Wintney Heritage Society. The Society exists to help people understand, protect, enhance and promote Hartley Wintney's rich heritage.

Its purpose is to help people living in the village today to keep in touch with the past so as to better provide something worthwhile for the future.

The Society aims to protect and enhance the character and appearance of Hartley Wintney, especially our Conservation Areas and Listed Buildings and our Common Land. Our committee comprises long-term residents and new arrivals to the village who together bring a range of expertise and perspective to meeting the Society’s aims. Committee Members meet monthly to inspect planning applications and to discuss village issues. We pay particular attention to proposed housing developments, planning applications and making representation when we consider that such proposals do not sit well with the look and feel of our historic village.

The Society was formed in 1966 and was originally called the Hartley Wintney Preservation Society. At the AGM held on 22 May 2019 it was agreed to change the name to the Hartley Wintney Heritage Society to more accurately reflect the positive attitudes that the Society stands for

We endeavour to hold an Autumn and Spring meeting for our members to catch up with the Society’s work and to influence future activities. So that our representations on behalf of the village continue to count we work closely with Hartley Wintney Parish Council, liaise with Hart District Council and continually seek support from local residents who share our aims. You can support us by becoming a member of the Society for a small annual subscription. Members are kept informed of village matters by e-mail, through members’ meetings and by accessing the website.
