Between 1987 and 2011, the Gloucestershire Rural Community Council’s Local History Committee published an annual journal, ‘Gloucestershire History’, containing a range of articles on the history of the County. ‘Gloucestershire History’ replaced the existing ‘Local History Bulletin’, which the Committee had published for many years.
With the winding up of the Local History Committee, publication of ‘Gloucestershire History’ ceased, and the new GLHA has no current plans to produce a comparable publication - although that remains a possibility at some future date.
A list of the articles published in all 25 issues of ‘Gloucestershire History’ is given below.
