Creating a local registry at my desktop for docker images

I have Ubuntu installed in my machine and i am running docker engine here and able to pull images from docker hub successfully. Also able to do all the operations on images and containers successfully.

For my project, I am doing a POC to set up a local registry into my host machine (Ubuntu 15.10), initially inside general Internet (no firewall checks).

Can anybody suggest me the steps to proceed on how to set up a local registry in my machine for docker images and how to access it (push,pull and image creation as well as start/stop of container)??

A bit detail explanation of steps will be appreciated as i am newbie to docker.
