Welcome to the new home of the Awsworth and Cossall History Society. The group was formed in 2007 to get involved with our local history, unearth new information and record it for us all to enjoy. The group meets on the 4th Tuesday of the month at The Gate Inn Awsworth at 730pm EXCEPT on certain dates when guest speaker availability dictates a change to the normal pattern! See our Events Schedule for further details.
The History Beneath Out Feet
Our Guest Speaker programme is packed during the autumn and winter months with a variety of local historians sharing their knowledge giving all who attend a fascinating insight into their local area.
Glasshouse Yard Recent discoveries unearthed in Awsworth include evidence of very early glassmaking furnaces. We have gathered and recorded information, unearthed artifacts and some members have actually visited the site. Our Village History Walk and Talks include this location so don't miss the next one!
Awsworth Cemetary Survey One of the future projects of the society is to do a full survey of Awsworth Cemetary.
Ongoing Projects We have a number of ongoing projects to research and record the history around you. If you would like to know more, see our Projects section, maybe you could help!
