  About the Society

The Society was formed in 2004 with the aim of building on the work of the late Tom Beastall and the groups he worked with some 20 years ago. It currently has about 140 members and holds monthly meetings between September and May. (See Meetings page.)

Members are actively engaged on a number of projects which are seen as an important part of the Society’s activities. (See Projects for more details.)

The Society is building a documentary and photographic archive of the area’s history which will be available for research. Tickhill Library have kindly provided room for the Archive. As well as donations of original material, the Society welcomes the opportunity to copy documents and photographs where people prefer to retain the originals.

Involvement in local Issues
The Society has become involved in local issues related to the area’s heritage. Examples include support for the Parish Room Improvement and for re-instating limited public access to Tickhill Castle.

Members receive a quarterly Newsletter which not only passes on news but also disseminates research, examples of historical evidence about the Tickhill area and reviews of books and websites. Spare copies are placed in the Tickhill Library. (See News and Local History - Snippets for the latest edition and back numbers.)
