… to the website for the NOTTINGHAMSHIRE LOCAL HISTORY ASSOCIATION which was formed in 1953 to bring together people and organisations interested in all aspects of local history in the county.
We publish our magazine The Nottinghamshire Historian twice a year and members receive a free copy. Every issue contains news, articles and reviews.
We also publish a FREE monthly e-newsletter detailing topical news items and current events at local societies.
We hold bi-annual day-schools covering a wide range of subjects. The next one will be on Saturday 23rd March 2019, at Ravenshead Village Hall. Entitled Historic and Sustainable Transport, it will provide an opportunity to examine the history of motor car manufacturing in Nottinghamshire as well as the workings of the Cromford Canal, wheeled travel in Mansfield and roadways through time.
The Angel Row Forum takes place in the Local Studies Library on Angel Row in Nottingham and was established as a FREE event for anyone with an active interest in local history. We hold meetings four times each year and the next one will be on Tuesday 5th November 2019 where archaeologist, lecturer and author James Wright will tell the story of the excavation of the lost mediaeval fortified manor house at Strelley Hall
There is an ever-changing and growing News section on the site, where you can follow local, regional and national developments in local history. We also maintain a list of the local history societies in the county, and a calendar of events, as well as a page of useful links. and a list of speakers.
