Research

Summary

The Wrekin Local Studies Forum encourages research into local history. On these pages we have attempted to list some of the papers produced. In addition many forum members publish their own papers and leaflets, for details see individual society web sites.

This section has been split into three pages.

This page gives a general summary and lists two papers published by the Industrial Heritage Group under the auspices of WLSF.

The next page lists the papers directly produced by the WLSF

The last page lists papers produced by the Telford Historical and Archaeological Society

All of these papers are available from Telford & Wrekin Libraries (Southwater, Wellington & Madeley), Ironbridge Gorge Museum library (Coalbrookdale) and Shropshire Archives (Castle Foregate, Shrewsbury).

T & W Library Service can make copies of articles for a small charge.
