Cheltenham Local History Society works closely with and supports the Gloucestershire County History Trust in its work on the Cheltenham section of the Victoria County History (VCH) Gloucestershire volume XV.

CLHS has an enthusiastic and productive volunteer group, which contributes to the work on VCH by adding previously un-catalogued material to the Gloucestershire Archives catalogue, making it available to VCH (and other) researchers, and several of our members have contributed research or written part of the draft texts. Latest news on the project can be found by clicking the VCH image below, or at the VCH website. Draft texts for Cheltenham and transcriptions of historical records are available for download from the VCH Academy website, where you can also find the latest VCH Newsletter.
