...The Hampton Society today for news and events

A few words about us

The Hampton Society is primarily concerned with the protection and development of the local environment, both built and natural, and to ensure that the provision of amenities enhances the quality of life for the residents of Hampton.

We think Hampton is pretty special. We welcome improvements to our surroundings as long as they don't adversely affect the well being of the village and its residents.

If you feel the same way and would like to find out more about the village you live in then we welcome you to join the Society today.

Kempton Park development – an invitation to find out more

The Hampton Society have just been contacted by the The Jockey Club’s preferred developer (Redrow) and their consultation team (Curtin & Co) to invite and encourage our members, and residents of Hampton to an ‘Information Day’ they are hosting next weekend. The details are:

Hampton 100 Years Ago by John Sheaf available now

This newly published book, written by Hampton local historian John Sheaf, provides a fascinating description of Hampton 100 years ago.

It covers the layout of the village, the roads, the shops and pubs and some of the significant buildings at that time as well as the occupations of some of the householders. There is a separate section for every road that then existed; each with an individual map and related images.

This very well-illustrated book, with many pictures in sepia and colour, includes over ninety historic photos and illustrations and forty five maps and is published by the Borough of Twickenham Local History Society.
