Artefacts from the Society Collection
We have a wonderful collection of artefacts – objects with a local history connection, almost all donated by members of the community.

Local history articles
We have been writing a weekly article for the South Wight Chronicle since 2015, when we took this job over from the late Fay Brown who had provided a local history page for many years. The Chronicle (as it is known) has no on-line version, meaning that Society members and others who live on the ‘North island’ or even further afield were not able to read our articles, so we are publishing them here on our website, starting with those from 2015.
A small plea for support
We are managed and run by volunteers, and rely on Museum visitors, membership subscriptions, sales of our publications and donations for our income, so these are difficult times for us. If you would like to support us please think about joining the Society (click the button below for more information) .Join the Society
Or please just use the Donate button here to help us in our work of preserving the rich heritage and history of Ventnor and surrounding villages and sharing it with local and wider communities. [The Society is a Registered Charity No 286848]
