Welcome to Bicester Local History Society


Thank you for visiting the Bicester Local History Society (BLHS) website. We hope that this website will be of particular interest to anyone wanting to discover more about the history and development of the town of Bicester and its environs, as well as the ever-increasing activities of the society. Simply use the menu on the left to navigate your way around the site.

The Upcoming Talks page in the Meetings & Events section lists the forthcoming popular monthly talks that we have organised, some of which focus on Bicester, others on more general local history themes. Or to get a flavour of past talks, you can also view comprehensive summaries of those we've already had.

Over the years, BLHS has amassed an impressive selection of photographs and postcards - visit the Gallery to see some of them - as well as an Archive of local history objects and documents.

Bicester Local History Society is always looking out for new sources of material to further our knowledge of the history of the area. If you have any photographs, drawings, maps, artefacts, stories or other relevant information, we would like to hear from you.

We are proud of our town and its heritage, and the ultimate aim of this website is to bring the local history of Bicester to life, and to make it accessible to as many people as possible.

The Contact Us page gives you the opportunity to provide feedback on the website, to contact us regarding activities organised by BLHS, to share memories, or to ask and answer questions about Bicester.
