Welcome to the website of the Bedfordshire Local History Association (BLHA)


The association promotes the study of local history within and around Bedfordshire and provides a forum for discussion and cooperation between interested groups, individuals and its members.  We also seek to improve communications between local history societies and the broader historical network both regionally and nationally.
