Stonehouse History Group Information boards.
Last summer Stonehouse History Group began an exciting project to create a series of information boards around the town to inform people about the history behind the scenes we see today. We obtained grants from the MidCounties Co-op and Stonehouse Town Council to cover the costs of designing and making the boards.
We decided where they should be located so that people could see them easily. Then we needed to choose the right information and the best photos to fit on the boards.
We have three boards in the High Street - by the Globe Inn, The Millennium Stone and the Woolpack Inn. There is also a board, sponsored by the Doverow Hill Trust, sited at the entrance to Doverow Wood.
Thanks to the Town Council maintenance team for putting them up.
It is our intention to create a trail of approximately 10 boards over the next couple of years with a leaflet to guide people around.
We hope to get sponsorship for future boards so if your organisation would like to contribute, please contact us via

We celebrated our ninth birthday at our May 2016 Annual General meeting with a show and tell evening. Members brought along an item of interest and had 10 minutes to speak about it.
Peter Morton brought along a cannonball, Cresby Brown talked about Stroud Voices, Philip Wells spoke about Liddiatt Leftovers The Congregational Church Organ, Alex Walmsley about the Methodist baptism register, Andrew Cooke about an engraved brass dog collar and Shirley Dicker about Timbabild.
We finished off the evening with a raffle and refreshments and time to view the exhibits.
