Welcome to the Bear Flat History Group website, dedicated to researching the history of Bear Flat and its environs, presenting Bear Flat history in easily accessible articles and generally providing a history resource for anyone interested in our neighbourhood.

The site is in continuous development.  If you have any material that you think might be of interest, please do let us know by emailing at history@bearflat.org.uk.

Latest updates

It has been a little while since our last website update, so a belated Happy New Year to our readers.  After the Christmas break, the website starts 2015 with two new articles:   the charitable society Convivial Order of Bears and an article on a distinctive bungalow at the bottom of Wellsway – A History of 131 Wellsway – as well as continuing our quiz that tests your knowledge / observation of Bear Flat.
