Anglo Saxon Conesford - Map

Local History

As well as our interest in Dragon Hall specifically we run an informal Local History Study Group to discuss the history and memories of the whole King Street and Ber Street area.

We are also building up a small Local History Archive of material of any type and of any period relating to the King St and Ber St area, i.e. medieval 'Conesford'. We welcome material sent in by anyone which relates to this area, however brief, and we particularly welcome people's memories of growing up in this area. So far our Archive consists of transcripts of some interviews about life in the area which were done for the King Street Community Voices project in 2010 - 2012, and a vivid memoir about growing up in the area in the 1950's: In the Shadow of the Castle by John Stevens.
