Portsmouth (WEA) Local History Group

The Portsmouth WEA Local History Group meets at the Buckland Community Centre, Malins Road on a Tuesday evening from 7-9pm during term time.


We are an informal workshop group with around ten members researching areas or topics of history and we welcome new members or visitors.

We are currently researching areas of Southsea in preparation for revised booklets: Albert Road, Fawcett Road, Highland Road and Eastney Road; we are also looking at Locksway Road and Stamshaw.

Memories are always welcome on any area of Portsmouth for possible inclusion in forthcoming publications.
