About Bradwell Historical Society

Bradwell Historical Society was formed in 1994 to encourage local people to become involved in the history of the village and the area, and to build up a local archive.  However, the Society does not confine its activities to this and has welcomed speakers on a wide range of historical topics.  They meet on the third Tuesday evening of every month at 8.00 pm in the Methodist Hall, Towngate (but the meeting on 19th April 2022 will be in the Methodist Chapel).  The varied programme includes illustrated lectures given by visiting speakers or by members of the Society with a specialist interest or who have researched a particular topic.  The Society also arranges reciprocal village tours with other local history groups, and daytime visits to a range of venues of historical interest. In the recent past these have included visits to Bugsworth Basin, Cresswell Crags, and the Holocaust Museum at Laxton.

The Society has approximately 40 members and the annual subscription is £10. Everyone is welcome to join and there are no age limits. Visitors may attend the Society’s talks on payment of a fee of £5 for each talk, and after two such attendances may become full members for the remainder of the year without further payment.

The AGM is held in January and the current officers are:

President Mr K. Hall        621727 
Chair Mr B. Gillham 623345 
Vice Chair
SecretaryMr J. Monahan 621708
