We are a small group of people interested in the heritage of our locality, but we also enjoy listening to a variety of visiting speakers about a wide range of topics relating to history.

Heaton and District Local History Group is a non-profit organisation whose only interest is in promoting the study of the local area. To the best of our knowledge all the material on this site is produced by ourselves, or is in the public domain. If we have inadvertently infringed any individual's copyright please inform us and we shall take appropriate aciton. Please do not copy our own material without indicating its source. Thank you.


See our Programme of events, where sometimes we meet at different venues.

Each year we plan an outing to a place of interest. See our Programme for further information.


We produce publications from time to time and some members write their own papers. Visit our Blog for shorter pieces of historical discoveries.
