Maps and Books
Alvechurch 1920-1960 and Alvechurch Past & Present
Two books 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.
The Alvechurch Village Society and the Alvechurch Historical Society worked to support the production and distribution of these books as a valuable record of local history that was beginning to be lost from living memory. The first book of photographs, stories and anecdotes was published in 2000 and its success revived so many memories that a second book was produced two years later.
The books are £8.99 each or £15 for the pair.
