Ongar Millennium History Society

The Archive

The Society has a wealth of material relating to the history of Ongar. There are numerous photographs both old and modern together with letters, maps and other documents. There are also many books and leaflets pertaining to the locality and a host of artefacts from past buildings in the area. Among these are items from the old Ongar Grammar School and the recently closed Ongar War Memorial Hospital.

We maintain an archive for the Society. If you wish to see or borrow any of the articles, please contact a member of the committee.
