Research on Church Stretton History
The following projects have either been undertaken under the auspices of the Church Stretton Area Local History Group involving a number of members working together or by individual members following an area of their own interest relating to some aspect of Church Stretton History.
However, we do very much welcome research projects from non-members. Do you have an interesting article that you have researched and that you would be willing to share on this website? We would love to hear from you: get in touch with us - email firstname.lastname@example.org - attaching your article, if possible.
