Welcome to the Durham County Local History Society Homepage
The Society was formed in 1964 to encourage and promote interest in the study of the history of County Durham. It is a registered charity (no. 235597). The work of the Society particularly focuses on recent centuries when County Durham was playing a major part in the economic and industrial growth of Britain, and also making its individual contribution to the industrial, social, religious and political development of our country. The Society arranges talks open free to non-members, attends events promoting local history, issues a range of publications and maintains this website.
The Journal, available free to members, includes original contributions on Durham's history, articles on sources and reviews of books. Other publications, covering original research on a wide range of local topics, are made available to members at reduced prices.
