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.

2021/2022 Meetings Start in September

We will be starting the 2021/2022 series of Meetings soon, at St. Mary's Church Hall, Bathwick.

A new Meetings Calendar for 2021/2022 will be published shortly.

We look forward to seeing you there.

N.B. Due to ongoing issues concerning Covid-19, changes may need to be made to whether we physically meet or continue with Zooming or some combination.

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
