In January 1974 the collection numbered almost six thousand items and a Parish Museum was opened in a small room of ninety square feet ground area and ten aspects of local history were shown in rotation. This proved so successful that in 1982 a more permanent home was found in a disused coach-house and stable.

We have a considerable number of local genealogical charts;  many relevant Society publications including Parish Registers, details of Monuments in the Churchyard and Cemetery (Anglican and Non Conformist); and some Census transcriptions. Other publications cover the history of local villages, the history of Purbeck Stone quarrying, and Langton Matravers in World War II.

If you are tracing information about families most information will be found by clicking links on the left to "Publications" and "Family Histories" and then on to further pages in greater detail

We are always pleased to welcome new members. Benefits include free admission to the Museum and periodical Newsheets.
