Researcher for VCH Somerset

The Somerset County History Trust has secured funding to appoint a researcher for 12 months for a fixed fee of £26,500.

The person appointed will undertake high quality original research of the parishes of Staplegrove and Norton Fitzwarren, near Taunton, to the standard required for the Victoria County History. You will then use this research to create the draft chapters on the two parishes for inclusion in Volume XIII of the Somerset VCH. The two parishes have a rich and varied history.
