Over the years we have accumulated a small amount of
historical information about Hadnall. There
have been a number of enquiries from many parts of
the world with people asking for information or
indeed supplying pictures and stories etc. The
site will therefore continue to make this
information available to everyone - indeed the focus
will be to increase what is offered.
We are not only recording the
'old' history of Hadnall, but also the 'new'
history. As the village changes and grows we
will be recording these changes to form a bigger
and broader record of Hadnall. We welcome
any contributions from anyone with a story to
tell, old or new pictures. Requests for
information may be accepted as there are folk
living in the village who may know the answers.
For the moment, our resources are accessible
through the Hadnall

Shropshire during the War and how much of what
happened, had already been planned before the
outbreak of hostilities. We will look
forward to inviting Dorothy tospeak tous again
at some point in the future.
The November meeting will be the "annual"
running of one of the videos of Hadnall
Pantomimes as produced during the 80s and 90s.
