New Project for Historical Society

With the Dog Kennel Lane project completed, Boroughbridge and District Historical Society is now looking at an ambitious new venture, the writing of a book on the history of Boroughbridge. This is something that members have expressed an interest in, and the society would now like local residents to come forward if they would like to be involved in the writing, or if they have any resources that they feel would help with the writing (e.g. old photos, family recollections etc.). Mike Tasker has drawn up a list of possible areas to research and he has agreed to lead on the project. More information is available on the society’s website at

If you feel you would like to investigate any aspect of the history of our town or could be involved in any way, please do get in touch. You do not have to be a member of the society. We must stress that you do not need to be an experienced writer or professional historian to be involved! This is an inclusive venture and anyone with enthusiasm is welcome.  For more information, or to get involved, please contact  or 01423 322862.
