The Ramsbottom Heritage Society normally publishes 2 magazines a year, which are free to all members. The first 25 magazines have been converted to pdf files and can be viewed for free. As these have been scanned in from the original documents, the content may not be 100% accurate, but hopefully this will be improved with time. If anyone would like to help in proof-reading the magazines, please contact us.


There is also an index of the 25 magazines
