Bulletins of the Bishop Wilton
Local History Group
The Bishop Wilton Local History group was active between 2002 and 2012. In those 10 years they produced 20 bulletins with articles written by their members and various contributors. They contain much valuable information on the history of the village. The group is now disbanded and in its constitution it said that all proceeds generated subsequently to its closure of the group would go to Bishop Wilton Church fabric fund for the upkeep of the church. Therefore all funds generated from sales of these bulletins will be donated to St. Edith's church. Secure checkout is provided by Distribly. The Bulletins cost £3 each, or purchase all 20 in one file for £30, once payment is made a link will be provided for you to instantly download the file.

all bulletinsAll 20 bulletins are contained within one 340 megabyte PDF file and 586 pages.
- Fully text searchable.
