The Hodnet Scrapbook

Shrewsbury Street / High Street, Hodnet

Over the years a few local residents have collected newspaper cuttings and similar records of events in the lives of local people and communities. We are grateful to Janice Parker and Rachel Harrington for making their personal archives available to the web-team so we can make a selection from them available to a wider audience.

Please be aware that many of the images included in this section were scanned from newspaper cuttings or photocopies of the same. This means the quality is not always the best, but leaving out the pictures because of their low quality would lessen the interest value of the articles as a whole.

Below is a list of the pages in this Scrapbook section. Several of these pages have multiple items per page and many of the pictures will enlarge if you click on them.

Initially, the reports will be listed according to topic, as some of them are undated. This may be revised in the future. Several items are undated and for many the original place of publication is unidentified; if you can provide more information on any item in this section, please contact the web team.

Below are the corresponding galleries where you can view all the photographs found in the scrapbook.
