Welcome to Our Website 

        Clayton History Group began on 29th October 1996.

We meet on the second Tuesday of every month in the village library at 10.30. 

Over the years we have researched various Clayton based topics and have had two books published. "Walking Round Clayton" and "Images of England".

Our aim is to learn, inform and support our community.
