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 7.00 pm on the second Thursday of each month in the Cinema Room 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?).

We had to scale back our activities during lockdown but have gradually rebuilt towards a normal programme since then.
