History Society

Viewing today the stats for this site I am totally amazed at the numbers who are viewing this pages and must have a keen interest in the history of our district and follow the writings I do from time to time.

There are currently in excess of 500 hits a week and over the last twelve months there have been 34,226 hits to the pages – a staggering number from almost every part of the world. I doubt if there is another local history site that can claim anything like these numbers.

However, I would be delighted to receive your comments on the site and if you have anything that you would like to submit for publication.

In January 2020 we commenced our new course for the weekly meetings will be looking at the lives of Children in the Workhouse and a comparative study on the different attitudes to children between the Stoke and Chell workhouses. When this is term is finished before Easter, we shal continue the theme of this study for the following ten weeks so not too late for anyone interested – please do send a message and book in via the contact email. During this term we shall be spending a day at the National Trust Nottingham preserved workhouse.

Interested in joining this small but enthusiastic group please make contact via the em address drrichard.talbotmbe@gmail.com

The meetings are held at the meeting room in Bakewell Street Park, Bakewell Street, Penkhull, Stoke-on-Trent from 2p.m – 4 p.m. on a Wednesday afternoon.

Even a cup of tea is provided half-way through the meeting. We offer a warm welcome to new members
