Over the course of April we are exploring the studies registered with the Society for One-Place Studies featuring those that correspond to the relevant letter of the alphabet.
What is a One Place Study? That is a fine question and rather than me explain, I will refer you to the Society’s informative website. If you are interested in joining us and /or registering a study we of course welcome you. You can find the joining information HERE.

Old Fletton: Old Fletton is situated in Cambridgeshire and is registered with the Society for One-Place Studies. The study holder, Sadie, is conducting a micro study of the parish as part of her academic research including conducting some family reconstructions. So, if your family hailed from Old Fletton, do get in touch with her.
Oxborough: This village is situated in Norfolk and is registered with the Society for One-Place Studies. This study began with the publication of a book about the First World War Memorial and the subsequent formation of a local history society. Several local families have traced their family histories to this village which is famous for its church and the manor house, Oxburgh Hall. Further projects, including a study website, are being planned. If you want to contact the study, be sure to drop Kelvin an email.
