MHS is a society member of British Association for Local History (BALH) which does what it says on the tin – it brings together local historians on a national scale.

As a ‘society’ member, MHS gets:

­quarterly magazines which are available for members to borrow at our meetings

­email newsletters

­details of events organised by BALH – held in person, on line or on a hybrid basis. These events are found on the BALH website and in emails to members. The events are free to individual members of BALH, but members of a ‘society’ member get discounts on some of the events. You need a password to access this discount.

If you are interested in receiving copies of the email newsletters and/or details of events and our society password, please email the secretary on
