A group dedicated to the study of Dorset's local history

Founded in 1985, the Dorset Local History Group is a committee of the Dorset Natural History and Archaeological Society. It consists of ex-officio members of the society and a committee of twelve ordinary members who have an interest in local history. The committee meet twice a year to discuss policy, future activities and matters affecting Dorset's history.

The Dorset Local History Group puts on a lecture programme; two lectures a year (Spring and Autumn), a winter day school and a summer field trip.

Members of the DNHAS are automatically members of the group and are entitled to attend all events (as are the general public).
