Just over a year ago, Stretton joined with over hundreds of others all across the globe as a “One Place Study” – here’s a quick reminder what a One Place Study is all about. Each quarter the society publishes a journal which is always a great read.
After a bit of persuading, I wrote a short article about Stretton for the March edition, and how I’d been undertaking a “one place study” for about ten years without even realising it. In a small village, it’s impossible to really get to understand the local history of a place without knowing the people who lived here. For me it was a very logical step – once I’d got started. The short article explains how I felt compelled to dip my toe into the water and tell the story, so that others can share in our history of Stretton.
This year, because we’re all staying at home, the society has made it available to everyone. And you might recognise some of the photos in the journal. It’s available here and if you would like to get in touch at all about it or anything else that you’ve discovered during lockdown, then it would be lovely to hear from you.
