Discover more about the history of the city and surrounding areas…

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.
