County history in progress
When completed, the Victoria County History of Gloucestershire Volume 14 will cover all the ancient parishes of Lower Grumbalds Ash Hundred, including:
- Acton Turville
- Chipping Sodbury
- Little Sodbury
- Old Sodbury
- Wapley with Codrington
- West Littleton
Work on this volume started with Yate and was published as a VCH Short in autumn 2015 with the support of a group of volunteers based at the Yate Heritage Centre. The Gloucestershire County History Trust is very pleased to record its gratitude to South Glos Council for funding this work.
The Yate volume formed the springboard for the next stage on the project, to research the three adjacent parishes of Chipping Sodbury, Little Sodbury and Old Sodbury. We were fortunate to receive significant grant support for this work from the Bristol & Gloucestershire Archaeological Society, and further assistance from South Glos Council and Hanson PLC.
Work has now begun on the remaining parishes in the volume. If you are interested in finding out more about volunteering to help VCH Gloucestershire, please visit the VCH Gloucestershire website.
