Why not join us ?

The Society, which was formed in 1968, takes an active part in preserving our heritage. We promote various projects in local history and offer advice. We maintain links with local archives, libraries, museums and groups connected with archaeology, family history and industrial archaeology.


We have regular talks on local topics at venues around Cleveland, as well as occasional all-day meetings with invited speakers.

Guided Walks

Each summer we visit places of historical interest, some not usually open to the public, with expert guidance.


Our Bulletin, 'Cleveland History', is issued free to members twice a year. It is noted for its high standard and its variety of topics - there is always something to interest everyone. Members keep in touch through a regular Newsletter. This contains short articles, news and views, book reviews and details of forthcoming activities of the Society. Members own articles are often published in Newsletters and Bulletins. Our other publications include the best selling Map Albums series and books on aspects of history in Middlesbrough and Cleveland.
