Horncastle Civic Society

Welcome to the HCS website

The Horncastle Civic Society was founded in 1966 adopting the constitution suggested by the Civic Trust. The main object behind the society is to safeguard and preserve the rich heritage of our ancient market town alongside the inevitable demands for growth and development.
The society also attempts to promote the history, places of interest and activities in the town, in order to generate local pride and awareness, greater participation, an active community spirit and an expanding tourist trade.
Please note our website is being updated and will be available shortly.
