One of the reasons that people visit us is to find out a bit more on how to research the history of their local pub.
Within these research pages we provide a brief guide and a selection of sources that may be useful. Much of the information has been compiled by Simon Fowler, one of the society founder members. Simon has many years experience in all matters concerning historical research. If you would like to make use of his services he is available for private research and he has a website at www.history-man.co.uk
