The Asby History Group was formed in May 2005 by a number of local residents who wished to find out more of the background to their local area.
The stated object of the Group is to advance the study of the history of the district and in particular the Asby villages.
Our MeetingsMeetings are generally held on the first Wednesday of the month.
During the winter months these usually comprise a talk from a visiting speaker.
In the summer guided walks are held to sites of some historical interest. Photo albums of some of these past walk may be found on Flickr.
Non members are most welcome to attend our meetings for a small charge.

Members have carried out various projects during the life of the Group.
Perhaps one of the most significant was the Our Green Space project which included:
- The publication of a book about the history of St. Peter’s church.
- The production of an interpretation panel of the village in 1911, which can been seen elsewhere on this web site.
