The Long Ashton Local History Society has been active for more than 30 years promoting an interest in the history of the area. We usually meet seven times a year with approximately 40 people gathering together to share their enthusiasm for our village. The society is known for its warm, friendly atmosphere and is always pleased to welcome new people. The membership is comprised of those who have lived in Long Ashton for a few years, those who were born here and those whose family connections extend back centuries.

Over the past few years, speakers have included village, local and regional experts in topics as diverse as Roman Roads, the cricketer W G Grace, local railways and Victorian seaside holidays. Other than our regular programme of speakers, we also endeavour to preserve, catalogue and promote anything of local, historical interest. Why not come along?!
