Book, Maps & Village Trail


Alvechurch 1920-1960

A Snapshot of Village Life in words and pictures


This book on the 20th century history of Alvechurch and its surrounding villages; a period when the community had more than its fair share of characters, stories and unforgettable images.

Alvechurch Village Society and the Alvechurch Historical Society worked to support the production and distribution of this book as a valuable record of local history that was beginning to be lost from living memory. This first book of photographs, stories and anecdotes was published in 2000 and its success revived so many memories that a second book 'Alvechurch Past & Present' was produced two years later but is now unfortunately out of print. Copies may be available through other book sellers, online retailers and libraries.
