.The Appleton Le Moors Group was formed in 2006 and recently supported by a Grant from The Heritage Lottery Fund.
The Group's objective is to create a History Archive readily accessible to all and have regular formal and informal meetings to stimulate interest in the history of the Appleton-le-Moors and its people.
We are willing to look up information for individuals researching their Family History.
Community and domestic history are of particular interest, many of the records such as Census Records, Church Registers and School Log Book and some diarys are searchable.
A large collection of photographs and documents have been assembled covering the whole of the 20th Century and earlier
Events and News
"Many academic works use Appleton le Moors as a good example of a 12th century planned village but do not venture beyond the topography. The aim of this publication is to attempt to recreate a little of the day-to-day life of the residents of the village between its mid-12th Century beginning to the start of the Tudor period; 1150-1485. "
The book is on sale at a price of £6.99 plus £ 2.50 p&p.
It is 186 pages in length including 10 pages of illustration and 4 pages of Maps.

Frederick while employed by the village’s benefactor Mr Joseph Shepherd, it explores the life and times of a small rural village in Yorkshire during the early years of Queen Victoria’s long reign.
The Group have also researched in depth the life for
Frederick before and after he came to Appleton and discovered an intriguing mixture; a rise from lowly beginnings in the East End of London to a fairly wealthy middle-class conclusion in Lincolnshire.
