About us

Founded in 1986 we are a group of about 100 members most of whom are based in or around Bath. All members have a passion for Bath and its heritage and many members are actively engaged in researching some aspects of the History of Bath.

We also welcome members who are interested in local history but may not be engaged in research.

HBRG supports and promotes the local archive offices and libraries and encourages research into the place of Bath in national and international history.
