Blockley Heritage Society

Blockley Heritage Society

The Blockley Heritage Society exists to further public knowledge about the history of Blockley and adjacent parishes. It does this by collecting, preserving and displaying records, antiquities and other objects of historical interest, and by sponsoring talks, discussions, publications and visits to sites of relevant interest.

The Society’s collections include:

1. A library, and see Heritage Centre
written archives, also held at the Gloucestershire and Worcestershire Records Offices
2. some 1,000 artefacts including agricultural tools and historical costumes (some of which are in the custody of the Corinium Museum, Cirencester)
3. 500 photographs on the area museums service database and many more in our own archive

We are actively seeking to make these valuable collections more accessible to interested local people, visitors and others in our Heritage Centre in Park Road, Blockley. In 2010 the society took up a long lease of the building that has been converted into the Blockley Community Heritage Centre, comprising a Library/Research Room, a store for artefacts, and the Jubilee Hall for community use.
