About LIHS

Talks for the foreseeable future will be on Zoom. Members will be given joining instructions.
Please check Winter Programme page.  Designed to appeal to everyone, topics cover a variety of subjects related to local history and industrial archaeology. We are also building a digital collection of images and past Bulletin articles.

We can often offer help and advice to other groups and individuals on related topics, and thanks to the generosity of donors, we have a small collection of printed matter including books and leaflets which is available to members for information and research.
We publish a newsletter twice a year, and a substantial Bulletin as and when work is completed. See publications. We are affiliated to the Association for Industrial Archaeology (AIA) and to the Leicestershire Archaeology and Historical Society (LAHS), which has just celebrated its 150th anniversary, and several of our members also support this organisation.
