About the Study The Badsey Society was formed on 28th February 2002. Our comprehensive website includes transcripts of parish registers from 1538, census returns 1841-1911, the 1939 register, Enclosure records, 1910-1915 Lloyd George Valuation Survey, 1941 National Farm Survey, monumental inscriptions, household and trade directories, electoral rolls and has a vast alphabetical index. The website also features the World War I letters of one of the most prominent families in the village. There are also articles on people, places, nature notes and many maps and photos. In 1968, a photo survey was undertaken of houses in the village. Forty years later we repeated the exercise and took a photo of each of the 1000+ houses in the village.

We have produced several books and DVDs. We have been successful in being awarded several grants to help us in our projects. We have gained two awards for our work: Worcestershire Community Pride Award in 2002 for the original Badsey website (superseded in 2015 by the present website); the Marsh Award for Community Archaeology in 2008 for our Enclosure Map project.
