Welcome


Bridgwater Heritage was founded by Dr Peter Cattermole in October 2012. It was re-founded in March 2016 as an informal research group and online platform for publishing materials and research on the history of Bridgwater and the surrounding villages.

We welcome submissions on all aspects of the history of the area, be they primary sources, short articles, or extended research projects. If you are interested in being involved, submitting material, have any questions or are seeking help with research, then please get in contact.

The group aims to promote and propagate the understanding and appreciation of the rich history of the town. These efforts are intended to compliment the work and collections of the Blake Museum, the Bridgwater and District Archaeological Society, the Bridgwater and District Civic Society and the Friends of the Wembdon Road Cemetery.
