About Us

The Northamptonshire Natural History Society, founded 1876, welcomes all who are interested in the wonders of science and nature. We cater for all levels of interest, from those who are just starting to realise how amazing nature is, to those who have a life-long passion for the natural world.


The Society has it's own rooms and laboratory, located near the Derngate & Royal Theatres in the centre of Northampton.  There are over 250 meetings, walks and visits per year, arranged by the different sections.

Please browse through the NNHS sections to see which ones grab your attention. Each have their own webpages where more specific information can be found.


We host a wide variety of entertaining and thought-provoking meetings.

Please feel free to come along to one of our meetings to find out in person what NNHS can offer. You do not need to become a member before attending.
