Formed in 1962, the Society is a Registered Charitable Company Limited by Guarantee working to preserve the heritage and fabric of the historic town of Faversham and its surrounding parishes. Created in response to modernization and the loss of historic buildings in Faversham, the Society aims to ensure that Faversham’s individual sense of place and outstanding heritage features are not lost.
Over 50 years of growth and development have shaped the Society into a complex business with many different aspects, most of which engage directly with the general public as well as with specialist researchers and enquirers. With over 1000 members and run entirely by volunteers, the Society is one of the oldest civic societies in the UK and much of its early work has since been replicated by other civic organizations, especially our Open House event.
Since we refurbished and reopened this lovely 16th century public house in Faversham at the beginning of 2009, our reputation for pub food, in particular our specialist steak menu, has spread throughout the county, so that we now regularly welcome parties from many miles’ distance who come to sample our home cooking and real ale.
