Nailsea and District Local History Society was established in 1975 and aims to encourage and promote an interest in, and research into, the local history of the area.

The Society is open to all, and we meet on the second Monday of the month at Nailsea School. Here we have talks on wide range of subjects of interest to local people. In 2003 we were closely involved in the production of a new video "Nailsea - Bottle Green and Coal Black" on the History of Nailsea.

The purchase of the Tynesfield Estate for the nation by the National Trust has led to an increased interest in the history of the area. Our journal has often contained items on the Estate by those, and about those, who were born or worked there.

The Society is very much part and parcel of the community whose history it records. Various members of the society have helped people, from all over the world, with their enquiries about the history of the area

The Society is also very active in raising awareness of, and ensuring proper consultation in, development matters that may impact on the historical landscape of Nailsea and the surrounding district.
