Cringleford Historical Society
The society has published a range of books covering the history of Cringleford. Please click on 'Cringleford Books' (above) for full details.
Cringleford Historical Society was formed in 1981 to promote the study of the history, architecture, antiquities and development of the village. Throughout the autumn and winter we run a series of talks on a variety of topics whilst during the summer we organise outings to sites of historical interest.
