The Beeding and Bramber Local History Society was formed in 1981 for people who have an interest in the past of the two villages, as well as Botolphs, Small Dole and Edburton.   From small beginning, the society now has over 80 members and meets from September to April on the first Wednesday in the month in Beeding and Bramber Village Hall.   Talks cover a wide range of subjects relating to the history and natural history of the local area and Sussex in general.   Visitors are welcome to these talks for a 2.00 entrance fee.

All meetings are held at the Village Hall on the first Wednesday of each month commencing at 19:45

Local History Society World War 1 Project
The 3Bs (Beeding, Bramber and Botolphs churches), the Local History Society and other interested people are studying the impact of WW1 on life in Beeding and Bramber.   We know the names of the servicemen who died, because their names are inscribed on the war memorials in Bramber, Beeding, Edburton and Small Dole.   One of our members has researched all of those people.   We are now trying to trace their descendants, so that they can be invited to any events that are held, and to give us more information about them.
But just as important are those who went to war and survived.   They are harder to trace, though we have learned of some.   If you can tell anything about any of our villagers who served in WW1 and came home again, or if you can put us in touch with their descendants, we would be pleased to hear from you.  A display of our finding will be held in the Gladys Bevan Hall in November.
If you would like to help with this project, get in touch with the Local History Society on 01903 812847 or at
