Bunwell Heritage Group was formed in 2005 as a result of a finding in a village survey that the history of the village should be recorded in some way.
The group decided to research and write a comprehensive social history of the parish/village and that work has been on-going since its inception. It is a long term project and rather than wait some years for the whole book to be ready for publication, a decision was made to publish it, on the internet, as a series of essays. Those essays will eventually form the chapters of the completed book.
The website is www.bunwellhistory.co.uk and on its ‘History' page has links to enable pdf files of the essays to be downloaded. The careful research necessary for a serious historical document has necessitated the adoption of an academic format for the essays. Having said that every attempt is being made to make them readable and interesting to all.
In addition to the links to the essays, the website contains pages dealing with the village generally and some interesting items of recent history.
The Group is always pleased to receive your comments, contributions and ideas. It is particularly anxious to collect the reminiscences of those who have spent many years in the village.
