The Origins, Development and Occupants of the buildings known as Bullocks
A power-point presentation by Lyn Blewitt
Saturday 12th March 2016. Starting at 10 am.
Bullocks has recently been reopened as a cafe and bistro.
During building works, specialists were able to undertake detailed building research which included both structural and dendrochronological (tree-ring dating) surveys. The results of these surveys will be presented with other documentary research which has been undertaken by members of the Dodderhill Parish Survey Project* research team who are currently working on their latest Heritage Lottery Project investing the historic buildings and people of Droitwich’s High Street and Friar Street.
“Historic Droitwich; Its streets and People” now in the third year, is the current Heritage Lottery research project undertaken by the group – details of workshops, guided walks and other planned events and activities will be given at the meeting.

Dodderhill Parish Survey Project*
The research group have previously undertaken three Heritage Lottery Projects in the adjacent parish of Dodderhill which includes Wychbold and the church of St Augustine’s on the hill above Droitwich. A book and a website were produced detailing the results of that research.
The town of Droitwich and the rural area of Dodderhill were closely associated with strong family ties and the salt industry.
To reflect the expanding research brief of the members, the new working title “Droitwich and Dodderhill History Research Group” will be used.
