The Redditch Local History Society was founded in late 2009 with the aim of promoting,
preserving and protecting the heritage of the unique history of Redditch, a small
town in the West Midlands.
We are based at the Forge Mill Needle Museum and Bordesley Abbey Visitor Centre,
and we document and communicate the history of Redditch by means of exhibitions,
talks, maps, walks and audio/visual records.
We have monthly meetings throughout the year. At the meetings we follow our activities
and allow members to present their own local history activities. We also aim at
every meeting to have an activity such as a presentation or film related to Redditch
The Society held the latest meeting on Monday 3rd June at the Forge Mill Needle
Museum. The next meeting is on Monday 1st July at 2pm at the Forge Mill Needle
Museum. Information on the presentation to be given at this meeting can be found
on our Programme page.
