Local History Group members have been involved in a range of explorations together with other people in our neighbourhood. Our main project over the last two years has been about World War 1 and its effect on our area, with a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to support our researches (see below).
We've also spent a large amount of time researching the history of local shops in Bishopthorpe Road, Nunnery Lane, South Bank and Scarcroft Road (see here).
