Work in progress
Work on this volume started in October 2013. The intention is to cover all components of the historic Cheltenham Hundred, namely the four ancient parishes of Charlton Kings, Cheltenham, Leckhampton, and Swindon (village), plus the adjacent parish of Up Hatherley, and some revision of the southwest part of Prestbury directly adjacent to Cheltenham (originally covered in Vol VIII).
The most up to date information and furtehr draft text can be found at the VCH Gloucestershire Academy website.
Dr Alex Craven served as the editor for Cheltenham until the autumn of 2017. With the assistance of our medievalist Dr Beth Hartland and our consultant editor Dr John Chandler, Dr Craven oversaw the completion of drafts for the period up to 1945. Dr Jan Broadway is acting as editor for the post-war period. The work is supported by a vibrant group of volunteers. If you would be interested in joining them, see the VCH Gloucestershire Academy website for more details.
