Bishop Auckland & District

Local History

The Local History Group is probably the longest serving interest group within our U3A. We have maintained over 85 members in recent years. We meet on the second Friday of the month at 10.00 am for 10.30 am at Bishop Auckland Methodist Church.
We follow a programme of eight lectures when the broad focus is local history. During the summer we organise outings instead of lectures. Some of these are local but coaches are provided for longer trips. Normally the September day visit involves a Heritage Open Day opportunity.
