Welcome to the History of Bath Research Group

The History of Bath Research Group was founded in 1986 with the objective of bringing together historians who were actively engaged in research in the Bath area. Many of the members have published on different aspects of local history (including studies in the Journal Bath History) and have given papers at meetings or contributed in other ways.

2020/2021 Meetings Start in September

The 2020/2021 Series of Meetings Calendar will start in September, at St. Mary's Church Hall, Bathwick.

A new Meetings Calendar for 2020/2021 will be published shortly.

We look forward to seeing you there.

N.B. It was not possible to re-arrange the visit to the Royal Mineral Hospital before the summer break.

The principal activities of the group are:

  • To carry out academic research on the history and development of Bath
  • To meet regularly – usually monthly – throughout the year
  • To hear of the work of other members of the Group
  • To invite other researchers to speak on subjects relating to Bath and its locality
  • To organise study visits to localities in or near Bath
  • To support individuals and organisations with an interest in Bath history
  • To help to ensure that Bath archives are maintained and developed for the future
