Through our recent archive and local studies visits, we’ve discovered a wealth of archive material relating to the history of Shirley which is waiting to be explored further!

In particular, we’d like help:

  • with looking at further information on proposed local railways;
  • with reading deeds and related documents which are helping us to find out about Shirley landowners, architects, and builders.

No prior experience required – just an interest in our local area!

If you’d be interested in joining in with research activities, then please drop us a line viahistory@fosjp.org.uk.
