About Us

Tooting has a rich history and we aim to promote a wider awareness of that history through a programme of talks, walks and special events.

Tooting History Group also keeps a watching brief on buildings of historic interest.

Our Conservation Officer attends Wandsworth Council’s Advisory Conservation Committee meetings to consider planning applications in Conservation Areas and to listed buildings across the borough and to represent the views of THG members on local planning matters concerning non-designated heritage assets, locally listed assets and items nominated for local listing

THG was originally started in 1977 by Frank Staff, a former Mayor of Wandsworth. After a spell of faltering interest, it was re-launched in 2009 by a group of local history enthusiasts.

THG has a steadily growing membership and is run by a committee of volunteers.

We look forward to meeting you at one of our upcoming talks.
