Local Project

Its been over 5 years since the Shawbury Moat project was started with the first tidy-up in april 2006.

At that time 30 people turned up, nowadays the number of people is from 2 - 6 people per session.

Because of this it is getting increasingly difficult to make any progress - we need YOUR help!

Any time you can spare would be appreciated even for half an hour would be great. Please come to any of our next tidyups.

The tidy-ups take place on the first saturday of every month from 9 a.m. to 12 noon

Contact Adrian Brown on 250295 or Heather Currie on 250615 for further details.

History of Shawbury Book

Over 20 years ago Mrs Evelyn Lea researched local history to produce a booklet called 'Shawbury - the Village and its People'.

1,000 copies were printed with a further 200 copies
ordered following its initial success.

This website has received some enquiries from people researching their family history, so the time seemed right to reproduce the original.

This has now been completed with the kind permission of
Mr Lea who still lives in the village.

Please also see the History of Shawbury link on the left hand side menu.

It is 10 pounds including postage & packaging

It has 53 pages and has chapters including: Early history, charities, village trades and industries, entertainment, amenities, interesting homes,
schools, characters, childhood memories, surrounding hamlets, RAF Station and families.
