Bitterne Local History Society, Heritage & Research Centre

225 Peartree Avenue, Bitterne
Southampton SO19 7RD

The society was formed in 1981 when a by-pass cut its way through the heart of the old village. Now we offer a museum containing artefacts from some of those shops that sadly met their demise more than 25 years ago. Clearly our interest was centred on Bitterne but we cater for all areas of Southampton east of the Itchen.
