See our Latest News for updates on what’s happening in the Civic Society.

Honley Civic Society was formed in 1984 with the aim of influencing the development of the village in a coherent fashion in line with its heritage. It is a non-political body with around 60 members.

By monitoring local planning and development matters, Honley Civic Society hopes to ensure that the built environment is appropriate to its surroundings. The Society also highlights green issues.

In normal times, the committee meets regularly, examines planning applications and represents the Society at Parish Council planning meetings.

During the winter months, public talks are held on a variety of subjects of local interest. We hope to restart our open meetings in September 2022. Keep looking back for confirmation. The future programme will become available on our Events page.

We seek to promote interest in Honley and its surroundings through researching and publishing a range of books covering the history of Honley. These now number around  20, with titles such as Hope Bank and A Portrait of Honley. We have recently featured a history of Farnley Tyas, a neighbouring village and another on the settlement of Magdale. Details of all publications can be seen on our Local History Books page. They are modestly priced and are normally available in Holme Valley News Honley, Zebra in Honley and READ bookshop in Holmfirth but may be purchased by post.

A series of monthly walks round the area is also organised, details of which are on local notices and on our Walks page. 

Membership is just £10.00 per year, but if you wish to try us out, then one meeting will cost £2.00 for visitors.

We meet each month from September to May (except December).  The meetings normally start at 7.30pm and finish around 9.00pm with refreshments available afterwards. We look forward to welcoming you soon to Honley Civic Society. Please keep checking back for further information.
