The Blakeney Area Historical Society (BAHS) is a society for those interested in the history of the Blakeney Haven (covering the parishes of Blakeney, Cley, Morston, Salthouse and Wiveton) and adjacent hinterland in North Norfolk. We are a very active society with a current membership of around 150. Our regular events and lectures are normally attended by 50+ members and visitors.
