The town of Towcester lies 60 miles north of London in rural Northamptonshire. It is the oldest town in the county with evidence of stone age and iron age settlements and was once an important Roman town, called Lactodurum. It was a border town between the Saxon and the Vikings and again during the Civil War between the Royalists and Parliamentarians.
The Towcester and District Local History Society was founded in 1982. The aims of the society are to find out about the history of Towcester and to publicise what has been discovered. Members keep in touch with each other through the monthly meetings , and the quarterly newsletter. In addition there are occasional evening outings. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month at the Riverside Centre in Towcester when talks are given on a variety of topics relating to local heritage.
