Altrincham History Society





The Society and Its Aims

What do you know about the history of your area?

Want to learn more?

Altrincham History Society exists to further the study of the Altrincham area and to enable such research to be communicated to the public.

Members enjoy a series of talks through the year, with occasional visits, and are encouraged to become active in researching topics related to the history of the area.

The Society publishes the results of research in booklets and a yearly journal. A full index of the Society's publications is available here in 'pdf' format.

Altrincham today is very much a modern town, with recent developments involving many changes but, beneath the streets and behind the buildings, there is a story to be told.


Because of the restrictions during the Coronavirus pandemic, we have reduced the subscription to £5 p.a. or £10 to include a spouse or partner. This fee will include a printed copy of the annual Journal.

During the Coronavirus epidemic the Society’s meetings during 2020 have been cancelled. We have talks planned for January 2021 onwards (listed below), however these will only take place if restrictions allow.

To keep members informed during this period when we cannot meet, the Society has issued a series of Newsletters, each of which can be accessed from the following list...
