Historic Droitwich: Its Streets and People

01 April 2017

Historic Droitwich: Its Streets and People is a project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) which has been carried out over three and a half years to March 2017 by members of the Dodderhill Parish Survey Project group. We hope that this will be the first of two or three HLF-supported phases and that we can carry out further research on the architectural and social history of the town’s earliest streets and buildings.

The current project has looked at documentary evidence of the people who have lived and worked in the town over 8 centuries (from the 1200s to the mid 1900s), and at the buildings which survive that were constructed initially from the 1300s to the 1600s.

The project’s results are available on its website, which has been launched to include the most important of Droitwich’s oldest buildings, and will soon be updated with more information on other buildings which also survive from the 1500s or 1600s.

More will be added to the website as time and our research move forward: to include buildings ‘lost’ over the last century or so, to add information on buildings constructed from the 1700s onwards, and to include the results of further research on the people of the town such as family tree reconstructions and information from sources not yet accessed.
