The Oakhill and Ashwick Local History Group has been meeting since the 1990’s. We have members interested in a variety of aspects of history. Some members are interested in very local history, some in more general history, and some mainly history within living memory, whilst others want to go further back and even prefer archaeology . . . A few members are very absorbed in history but the group as a whole is by no means heavy in its approach. We try to cater for all.
We do this by running occasional walks, talks, visits, quizzes and social occasions during the year. We also undertake projects (for example, updating the Oakhill Trail Leaflet) and prepare and publish books. Altogether the group has published six books, the latest being the second edition of ‘The Changing Face of Ashwick Parish’. In addition to all this we maintain an archive and a book collection (the latter is open to all members for browsing and short term borrowing).
