Society Publications


A newsletter is produced following each monthly meeting. There is a report on the previous meeting, current news for members and details of forthcoming events and meetings. The Newsletter is distributed primarily by email, and a printed copy is available for those who require it. This is delivered free to addresses in Alcester and Studley. The Newsletter is available to non-members free of charge using the button below.

Local Past

The Journal of the Alcester and District Local History Society

Local Past is published twice a year and contains fully-researched articles, snippets, photographs and readers’ letters.

Production of Local Past would not be possible without the help of our members and contributors. If you would like to submit an article, letter or photograph these will be gladly received. The editor will be pleased to give you help and advice on preparing your contribution.

Local past is on sale at our monthly meetings, on-line, and at the following outlets. Back issues of Local Past are available. Please submit a contact form for further information.
