VCH Gloucestershire Academy/Volume 14
Yate and the Sodburys
Places covered by this volume:
The history of Yate, north of Bristol, was completed by Rose Wallis in 2014. The result of this research was published in September 2015. This account will no doubt be further developed as we research the surrounding parishes and a revised version will be published in the full volume.
We are now working on the history of Old Sodbury, Chipping Sodbury and Little Sodbury. Dr Beth Hartland has researched the medieval aspects of The Sodburys and Doddington. Dr Alex Craven is working on the early modern and modern sections, assisted by local volunteers. Nick Kingsley, one of our Trustees, has volunteered to write the post-medieval history of Doddington.
We are currently particularly interested in finding a volunteer willing to explore the records relating to the Sodburys in Bristol Record Office.
If you are interested in helping with our work or would like to find out more, please contact the VCH co-ordinator Jan Broadway.
