Welcome to Basildon Borough Heritage Society.
We are a group of like-minded volunteers who believe that our culture and heritage is central to a sustainable community. We aim to preserve our past for the enjoyment, interest and benefit of future generations of Basildonians.
We do this by:
Collecting memories from people who have lived in the area for a long time.
Collect photographs and other keepsakes to be used at the various exhibitions we hold in libraries and other venues around Basildon.
Giving talks to groups interested in their local history.
Our Office and on-going displays are at the Green Centre, Wat Tyler
Basildon Heritage have some Outside Displays coming up.

In the New Year we are going to hold a monthly Saturday coffee/tea/memory morning in the Green Centre from 10 to 12 for members of the public to come along have and have a cosy chat, reminisce and have a drink. Our first will be on Saturday 1st February, so we look forward to seeing as many local residents as possible.
Basildon Heritage meet most Mondays and Wednesdays 10am-1pm as well as Saturdays 11am-3:30pm.
