Norton History Research Team

Norton Past was formed in 2004 by a small number of local residents having a keen interest in the history and archaeology of Norton. The diverse interests of its members spans research into the earliest evidence of Iron Age settlements through the next 2000 years and into the 20th century

Some members of the Team carry out ground research recovering and recording archaeological evidence of occupation through the ages, whilst other members research numerous archival resources, all of which improves the knowledge of our community’s heritage. Much of the information gained from this research is available to view here whether it's Roman Coins or Records of Births, Marriages & Deaths.

We are members of CLASP (Community Landscape Archaeology Project) and work closely with them in their research into the wider area. We also work with the Portable Antiquities Scheme by submitting findings to the County’s Finds Liaison Officer, who records all information on a National database.

We hold regular monthly meetings in Norton Village Hall generally 8.00pm on the last Friday of the month. See What's on

Over 2000 years of history!
