This section will contain documents, photographs and drawings of Soulbury through the ages. In order for this to be interesting, accurate and relevant we would appreciate it if anyone, who has any documentation in their midst that we can use, to please let Wendy Taylor know. She will scan/copy what you give her so you are not parted with your memories for very long.
There are a lot of very old buildings in the parish which must have so much history attached to them so if you have already done a lot of research on a building, and you would not mind it being published here please give Wendy a call on 01525 279530.
