Who are we?

The society was originally formed in 1975 for the village of Send only and in 1982 Ripley was included in the name as it was originally part of the ancient parish of Send.

The Society is very active, run by a committee of volunteers, many of whom have been involved with the history of the villages for over 40 years. Its aim is to to educate the public in the history of the ancient parish of Send and Ripley and of any nearby parishes. Considerable research has been conducted over the years and is fully documented by way of the many articles, which have been written by members.

Notice: This site is still going through many changes as we try to include the many facets of our society. Please check back on a regular basis to see new things and remember to refresh your browser so you see the latest pages. We apologise if from time to time some links don’t work or some pages appear unfinished.


We have a fantastic new website that is full of things to do – we’re going to list just a handful of them:
