The group is affiliated to the Carlton and Chellington Historical Society. It was set up in 2014 to promote the heritage of Harrold particularly that relating to the former local leather industry and has produced a Harrold Heritage Trail and accompanying leaflet. This starts and ends in Harrold and Odell Country Park linking, together and describing 31 historic buildings in the village. It may be downloaded from this website and is available at the Country Park, Bedford Tourist Information Centre and in the Harrold and Carlton Village shops.
The group also organises talks about Harrold's past.
