WELCOME TO GLOUCESTER LOCAL HISTORY SOCIETYFinal logo design

1st Sunday School

The world’s First Sunday School

 

 

Gloucester Local History Society is a relatively new group bringing together everyone with an interest in the history of Gloucester.  It was formed in 2012 under the chairmanship of Jerry Jenkinson who had previously spent over 20 years researching the history of this fascinating area.  His papers now form the basis of the Society’s archive (available to browse at each meeting).

So, if you too have an interest in your local history please get in touch and help keep the past alive in the present.

 

 

 

All meetings will now take place at the Dunrossil Centre, Gloucestershire Archives, Clarence Row, Gloucester, GL1 3DW, on the first Tuesday of the month (September – June, no meeting in January), at 7pm unless otherwise stated*.  Parking is available at the archives.  Non-members are welcome to attend (admission £3).

 

Membership £12, concessions £7.50.   

Please contact Caroline Meller, cmbmeller@gmail.com, for an application form.
