Welcome to Worcestershire Historical Society

Worcestershire, like many of England's historic counties, is served by a society dedicated to the publication of historical records. Founded in 1893, our Society was built on the work of famous Worcestershire antiquaries like Thomas Habington (1560-1647) and Treadway Russell Nash (1725-1811), whose work had already done much to illuminate Worcestershire's past.
