|      Llantrisant & District Local History Society|
For nearly 30 years now, the Society has been producing
a series of historical pamphlets for the membership. Mainly detailed farm histories, most of these have been
written by Mr Barry Davies. Members and others are encouraged to submit articles to the Research Editor.
Since 2000 a new series of research papers has been produced.
The Llantrisant and District Local History Society Drop Box.
The Society has gathered a great deal of research on the history of Llantrisant and surrounding district and would like to make this research available to anyone who might be interested. The research has been placed in a Drop Box to make it easy to access. A Drop Box is a cloud storage facility that allows you to access large files without them having to be sent by email. The LADLHS drop box contains:
- The Society's publications going back to 2001. Each volume is indexed to allow you to find the information that you are looking for.
- The Wills and Inventories of the Parish of Llantrisant
- Miscellaneous other pieces of information concerning the history of the Parish.
To access this mine of information all you need to do is email Secretary and we will send you a link to the file. You do not need to have a Drop Box account to view the information.
