Victoria County History

Founded in 1899 and originally dedicated to Queen Victoria, the Victoria County History (VCH) is an encyclopedic record of England’s places and people from earliest times to the present day. Based at the Institute of Historical Research in the University of London since 1933, the VCH is written by historians working in counties across England and is without doubt the greatest publishing project in English local history. In our areas they have a volume on Yate.

See work completed and in progress for South Gloucestershire.
