Discover more about the history of the city and surrounding areas. Dear members/friends,

In line with Government advice, the decision I made in March to close our doors to face-to-face Society meetings was a hard one to make. In the 29 years of Peterborough Local History Society, it is the first time that we have been unable to hold meetings in person.

The Society is very much alive and thriving though, with new members joining and our committee looking for innovative ways to ensure we retain a cohesive group of people and still have opportunities to share and enjoy the local history of our fascinating city and surrounding area.

Please do get in touch, if you would like to enjoy the benefits of membership; it would be good to welcome you.

I hope you are keeping well, in these difficult times.

Kind regards

Trevor Trevor Pearce

Chairman, Peterborough Local History Society
Welcome to the

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.
