The Stockton on the Forest and Hopgrove Local History Group was formed in 2008 and membership is open to anyone with an interest in Stockton on the Forest and it's surrounding area. The group's aims are to hold events, collect material and publish information to stimulate the interest and knowledge of Stockton and its neighbourhood.
