Local History Group
Meet, Chat & Discover Our Village’s History
Are you interested in finding out more about our local history or sharing your knowledge with like minded people?
Following the success of the ‘Our Village: Shenstone in the early 20th century’ exhibition and evening talk, we’ve launched our new Local History Group.
The all new Local History Group met for the first time on January 10th back in 2018 with a fabulous turnout and some really interesting discussions. If you were unable to attend the first meeting, don’t worry we’ve got plenty scheduled in for 2019 with the group meeting once a month. Each month we’ll be discussing a new topic surrounding the village and it’s rich and often unknown history.
See below for full details.
Where: Shenstone Community Library
When: We meet monthly in the library, usually on a Wednesday but do contact us for more information.

Shenstone Heritage Trails
We’re delighted to announce that after months of hard work the Shenstone Heritage Trails are now available.
The Shenstone Heritage Trails are the brainchild of a small group of committed local historians who came together to share their fascination with village history. What better way to do this than to give people an opportunity to immerse themselves in that history by following a heritage trail in which there are many stories to be told, buildings to see and the past to imagine.
The trails are available in the library, or you can download them from this website.
