Future publication 

The Society holds a considerable amount of material on local turnpikes in and around Cirencester, gathered during its Turnpike Study Group’s researches and led by the late John Hartland. Regular updates and several articles were published in the Society’s Newsletters between 1969 and 2001. Now, in association with the Milestone Society, a national charity formed in 2000, and linked to the research work about to be undertaken in the preparation of a Cirencester volume in the Victoria County History [VCH] series, it is intended to review this material and bring it together for publication in some suitable form. For further details, contact the Society’s editor.

Publications

One of the aims of the society is to publish information concerning the past of Cirencester and its environs. This has been achieved by publishing Newsletters containing short articles and, recently, short reports on talks held during the year (these latter now online). Longer studies have been published as the Miscellany series. All publications to up to last year have been lodged with the Gloucestershire Archives. They can be found by quoting reference D10989, and are open for research at the Archives. All publications can be found using the tabs above. We do have a small stock of back numbers of both Newsletters and Miscellany. If we have what you want, back issues of Newsletters are £3 each and of Miscellany are £5 from our editor. The Society is keen to have assistance for future publications. If you feel up to editing or even researching new material, our Editor will be pleased to hear from you. If you have an article suitable for publication in short form about some aspect of local history we may be able to help. Contact our editor
