The Swaledale & Arkengarthdale Local History Group (LHG) is an informal sub-group of the Swaledale & Arkengarthdale Archaeology Group (SWAAG). Members of the LHG do not need to belong to SWAAG although many do.

Members’ interest are diverse and include the history of education in this area, place names  , Roman roads, health care and medieval taxes amongst other things.

Members of the group have worked with the North Yorkshire County Records Office  to transcribe the 19th C  tithe apportionments for Swaledale and are currently working on the Healaugh & Muker manorial records; see the SWAAG website above.

The group meets informally every couple of months or so. The records of the meetings are posted in breaking news on this site.
