Archive Item of the Month – May 2011

May 2011 is the Historical Association’s Local History Month, so to celebrate this our feature this time is our collection of Acts of Parliament held within the Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society (BGAS) Library. These date from 1698 to 1874 and relate to local areas such as the Gloucester to Hereford Road (1726), Severn Fisheries (1778) and Cheltenham Enclosure (1801).

You can of course search all acts of parliament online at http://www.legislation.gov.uk/, but this doesn’t beat being able to get hands on and handle copies of the Acts from that period of time.

For more information or if you would like to come and look at the Acts please contact archive staff.
