Stinchcombe Local History Society – “A Village Property” 

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

Stinchcombe Village is full of wonderful properties both large and small.

Combe House
Combe House

Each property has its own House History. All properties are rich in history and memories. Other Villagers know little or nothing about those histories. Indeed, sometimes the owners themselves know nothing!

Add Your Own House History

The opens in a new windowStinchcombe History Society is suggesting that once a month a local homeowner may like to publish what they know of their house history for all. Include photos and any other interesting stories and it will be added to the Parish website. Then maybe other local people can add their own extra titbits to that property history with their own stories.The opens in a new windowHistory Society can then build up a comprehensive history of all the Stinchcombe Village Properties.
