'Nailsea Local History Society was established in 1975 to promote an interest in the history of Nailsea. The year previous, Mr. John Reeves a History teacher, had been studying documents deposited in Nailsea Library. Miss Judith Atkinson, then Librarian, suggested that a study group be formed to assist in this work. The first meeting of the NLHS was on 22nd January 1975 when the group gathered to study the Deeds of Settlement. Miss Atkinson acted as Chairperson / Secretary, and several evening visits were made that year.

'In those days no other such society existed in the area between Long Ashton and Clevedon with their respective Conservation and Archaeological Societies. Because of this void the needs of the adjacent villages of Wraxall, Tickenham and Backwell had to be met, and shortly the name was amended to the Nailsea & District Local History Society ...'
