Founded in 2001, we are a group of local people sharing an interest in the history of Studley.
WHAT ARE OUR AIMS?
• To encourage interest in local history.
• Discover the comings and goings of everyday life in Studley, from early times to the present day.
• Safeguarding of local history material. Creation of a digital Studley Archive.
• Publish our findings so that the knowledge may be shared and enjoyed by others.
HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THIS?
Research archives & publications such as births, marriages, burial registers, voters lists, newspapers, wills, inventories, census returns; property documents, photographs, invoices; gravestones, memorial plaques; maps, reports from residents able to call upon their own and their forebears remembered histories.
HOW CAN YOU BECOME A MEMBER?
