Bingham Heritage Trails Association was founded in 2000 with the aim of enhancing public awareness of Bingham’s heritage. The Association takes a holistic view of that heritage including the geology, archaeology, history, built environment and natural history of the parish of Bingham.
The Association is a registered charity, Reg. No. 1090475, with educational objectives. It is a wholly voluntary association, depending on its own efforts and the generosity of various donor organisations to fund its activities. It is managed by an Executive Committee whose members serve as Trustees and are listed on the Charity Commission website.
The Association carries out and commissions original research which is ongoing and varied. It has included archaeological investigations, research into Bingham’s topographical and architectural heritage, documentary analyses and oral history interviews. The Association has amassed a significant archive of photographs of historical Bingham and has published a number of free leaflets and guides. These, together with a number of short monographs and a book length study, entitled Bingham Back in Time... A History of Settlement in the Parish of Bingham, BHTA, 2010, are available in Bingham Library.
The Association also delivers free public lectures, provides talks to local schools and other groups, mounts periodic exhibitions and contributes to local heritage events.
