Yatton Local History Society was founded in 1982 with the original aim of researching the history of the parish of Yatton. Public meetings and visits were added later to the programme of research.
The Society has since published two series of books, Yatton Yesterday and More Yatton Yesterdays, over the years, along with a Parish Survey, the book A History of Yatton and a Yatton Trail booklet, and has organised exhibitions and displays of photographs and paintings in the local library amongst other activities. The current series of books is entitled Yatton Past and Present with issue 2 published at the end of 2014 and issue 3 available now.
Meetings with a guest speaker are currently held during the winter months and there are occasional trips and visits in the summer.
The Society is a registered charity (no. 1019832) and is affiliated to the ALHA – Avon Local History and Archaeology.
We welcome local history enquiries or information via email at firstname.lastname@example.org but do not have the resources to help with family history enquiries (the Weston Family History Society may be able to help with these instead).
