About Us

The Gotham and District Local History Society was originally formed in 1974. Regular monthly meetings with appropriate speakers are held at 7-30pm in the Gotham Memorial Hall, Nottingham Road, on the third Thursday of each month with the exception of August. Other topics and correspondence are discussed after each talk. No membership joining fee is required. There is a separate attendance fee on the night. Typically 25-30 people attend the meetings.

The Society offers guided tours of the village and surrounding hills, as well as answering queries on Family Trees. The Society holds photographs, documents, records of the village including copies of Census records, Church and Chapel records, and school class photographs. Each year the Society endeavours to show a variety of these items at the annual village Gala. Any contributions are greatly appreciated.
