The History of Cleobury Mortimer

The Cleobury Mortimer Local and District Society website is well worth a visit for those of you interested in the local history beyond the school. You can find them here

In particular, the group have made available The History of Cleobury Mortimer by The Reverend Samuel Auchmuty who was the last person to complete a history of the town, which he did in 1911, after fourteen years as the parish priest. In 1996, M & M Baldwin, of The Bookshop in Cleobury Mortimer, re-published Auchmuty's work in order to make it more acessible to the growing number of those interested in the history of this south Shropshire town.

Now the History society, by kind permission of M & M Baldwin, have made the edition available to read online as a e book.

You can view / read the book via their site here -

On their site click the above book cover in the side bar to access the on line version.

I contacted the Cleobury and District History Society and sent them a link to this site and got a reply from Robert Hodge, the chairman.

Thank you very much for your mail.  Your site is very interesting and it is nice to see some of the material you have.

Thank you for linking to our site.  I have returned the favour and have added a link to yours.  It will appear shortly on the Links page.

If you or any of your co-ex pupils would like to join the Society, please come along to one of our meetings held at Neen Savage Parish Hall on the first and third Wednesdays of most months (see website).  You would be very welcome.

Best wishes

Robert HODGE
