NORTH DUFFIELD CONSERVATION AND LOCAL HISTORY SOCIETY was formed in the early 1980's by a group of local residents who wished to research the history of the village and to conserve the rural way of life. The society has existed through local self funding, however recently the National Lottery has awarded a grant for certain very specific and exciting projects.
