Peterborough Local History Society was formed in 1991 by a group of individuals who believed that the city needed an association where people could come together to share and enjoy the history of this area. Since then we have grown to a Society with around 75 members who meet once every month. Some of our members are researchers, delving into specific avenues of history; some are authors of local books; whilst the majority just want to come along and learn from our various speakers.
For a donation to Society funds, we will endeavour to research, from our personal archives, any topic that a member requests.
Over our twenty-six years we have donated several thousand pounds to various charities, raised by public presentations given by the Society.
