The Stretton on Dunsmore History Society was set up in 2001 following the highly successful publication of the book "Stretton on Dunsmore: the making of a Warwickshire Village" by the Stretton Millennium History Group.

 

Stretton on Dunsmore

For over one thousand years there has been a community in Stretton on Dunsmore. At the time of the Domesday book there was an established settlement here, the origins of the village were probably several hundred years earlier.

A book was produced for the second Millennium "Stretton on Dunsmore the making of a Warwickshire Village" (ISBN 095374620)"

This book was produced by a team of villagers - Denise Hume, Brian Clay, Roger Clemons, Sue Higgins, Rob Hume, Freda Leaver, Jesse Quinney and Bryan Sapwell. They were later joined by Warwick Dipple who designed the layout and prepared the book for printing.

The project was a success because of the work put into it from the project team and the support and information provided by the community.

The Society aims to promote and encourage interest in the local history of Stretton on Dunsmore and of history and archaeology in general.

Meetings are normally held at 7.30 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month in the village hall.

See 'About us' for further information.
