Our area, the old Urban District of Turton, includes the ancient Townships of Bradshaw, Edgworth, Entwistle, Harwood, Longworth, Quarlton and Turton, as well as Egerton, Bromley Cross and Chapeltown.
Illustrated talks and meetings are held from August to April inclusive on the fourth Wednesday of the month, at Longsight Church Centre, Harwood beginning at 7.30pm.
We have organised many slide shows/talks and walk-abouts for local schools and talked to many Societies and Clubs who have an interest in Turton local history. Any organisation seeking a speaker or requiring further information on the Society should contact the Secretary.
The "Membership" page contains information about how you can support Turton Local History Society by becoming a member.
