Thornton le Dale History Society

Welcome to the History Society

 

The Society was formed in May 2013 for people interested in the history of Thornton le Dale and the surrounding area. You are very welcome to join the Society or to attend our meetings as a visitor. There is a wide range of interests and expertise within the group and enthusiasm for investigating various aspects of the history of Thornton le Dale. 

 

We usually meet in The Hill Memorial Institute on the last Wednsday of each month at either 7 or 7.30 p.m. but please check individual dates, for meeting times.  


The next meeting of the Society will be on Wednesday, 29 November, when a short business meeting will be followed by an opportunity to discuss the Thornton le Dale Conservation Area ahead of the public consultation to be held on Monday, 4 December.  The meeting will begin at 7.30 p.m.

 

Please come along to a meeting and join us.

Last year the group bought some display panels with a grant from North Yorkshire County Council.  We would like to thank Cllr. Janet Sanderson for her support of our application.

 

 A Village Through Time

A group of members is working on a project 'Thornton le Dale: a Village through Time'.  We are collecting information about buildings in the village and tracing the people who lived there over the years.  Please keep an eye on the site for documents to download.  The documents below are a transcription showing  people who rented property in the village from the Hill estate in 1740/41 and a document showing tenants between 1800 and 1811.  There are also transcriptions of two different illuminated addresses to the Rev John and Mrs Hill in 1861 and 1892, listing tenants of the Hill estate.
