The Oxfordshire Local History Association (OLHA) is for everyone interested in the history of our county.  We foster and promote the study and publication of local history and act as an umbrella organisation for local history groups, of which there are more than 80 in Oxfordshire.

We also campaign to preserve and improve services for Oxfordshire local historians
