Alrewas in Pictures

In 1999 local historian Jeff Walker, assisted by his daughter Dianne, printed a lovely book called 'Alrewas Through the Century' (it also covered Fradley & Wychnor). It was full of pictures and fascinating facts. Unfortunately it's no longer available and copies are like gold-dust.

Alrewas Archives has produced two books and four films since 2008 and it was time for a new publication. Since 2011 we have collected hundreds of photographs, most of which are now on this amazing website. However, we also felt that it's nice to have a book to pick up and look through. Hence 'Alrewas in Pictures'.

'Alrewas in Pictures' covers the period from around 1900 to 1990 and is simply a book of over 100 photographs of the village arranged in streets. It's fascinating to see how things have both changed dramatically and stayed the same!

The book costs £3.00 (+£1.50 postage for books delivered outside of Alrewas) and all profits will be ploughed back into the archives.

Corrections In the excitement of getting the book out I mixed up a couple of roads. For photographs 55, 57, 58, 61 & 62 Church Road should of course be Park Road This will make this book very valuable in years to come as it is 1 out of only 100 printed. Look after it and you or your descendants may do very well out of it! That’s my excuse anyway!
