We need local history items please. If you have any stories about people or places in the village or if you know an elderly resident who has stories please send them in. We and the rest of the Parish would love to read them. If you have any pictures of the village or villagers as they were please send them to us for the Photo Album page.
The villages of Ashwellthorpe and Fundenhall are interlinked not only by their adjacency but also by the manorial extent, land ownership, field boundaries and not least, from the 20th Century, by the Village Hall and Parish Council. They have now, and have probably always had, a distinct character with people and events, societal structure and mobility shaping their individual histories.
The general Local History page will cover memories, events and past history which intertwine. This Fundenhall page will carry items of specific relevance to it – but if you’re not sure where your interest lies, browse through all the pages! And add to them, amend them, comment on and discuss them – all contributions welcome. Remember – yesterday is already history!
