‘Cambridgeshire Association for Local History’ seeks to be an umbrella organisation for the whole of modern Cambridgeshire but its talks, publications and members’ interests are primarily concerned with ancient Cambridgeshire and the Isle of Ely.
A separate society, Huntingdonshire Local History Society (see below), exists for Huntingdonshire, prior to 1974 a separate county: click here.
