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. Over the years many have published on different aspects of local history (including studies in the journal Bath History) and have given talks at our meetings. We also welcome those who simply wish to learn more about Bath's history and to support us in the work that we do, to attend our regular talks and visits, or to follow us through this website.
