Stirchley History Group grew out of the heritage programme at Stirchley Baths which so brilliantly connects the past, present and future. We’re passionate about our area and charting its development from a rural hamlet to a lively, still-growing urban village.
We meet at 6.30 pm on the second Thursday of each month at Stirchley Baths. We’re also often present at other events, acting as tour guides, collecting memories and pointing out some of the local features that are so easy to overlook (have you tried our Explore Hidden Stirchley walking trail?).

Ron Coley used to use Stirchley Baths to have a hot bath each week – at home they only had a tin bath. Here he walks to the where the bath used to be (now the cafe) and remembers how he tried to buck the system.
