Do you have any information on the shops and businesses that used to operate in Bodle Street? Do you or other family members have any photographs or documents that relate to them? The WDHG has an archive of books and documents relating to the Parish as well as holding monthly meetings (sadly currently suspended). We would like to eventually publish a booklet on local businesses. We hold quite a lot of information on the businesses that operated in Rushlake Green but with the exception of the White Horse and the Mill, and a little on Barnes blacksmiths and The Stores we have far less on those in Bodle Street, although we know from directories and Census information that a number were based here, many of which would have been run from people’s homes. If you have anything at all and are willing to let the group have copies we would love to hear from you via annette.spratley@gmail.com
