Historical Society News

A new history book on College Street

College Street, PetersfieldOver the years members of the society have as a group or individuals written many of the history books on Petersfield’s rich history.

We are therefore delighted that several of our members have, for the past three years, taken part as members of Petersfield U3A local history group in the research and production of a new book on College Street.

This excellent publication is published by the Petersfield Museum at £12.50 and available from the Museum and independent books shops in the town.
