In 2005 a survey was carried out by Bunwell Parish Council to discover how the community felt about their village and how they would like it to develop in the future.  One of the outcomes of that survey was a feeling, that as well as planning for the future, an effort should be made to record the history of the village for future generations.

The Bunwell Heritage Group's aim is to produce a comprehensive social history of the village from the date of the earliest settlements until the present time.  It is a long term project but we have passed the halfway point.  On 30th May 2014 we published 'Bunwell: A Village History Volume 1'.  Volume 2 will complete the project and the intention is to publish this in 2017.  In the interim the Group will publish historical data and items of local interest on the Miscellanea and Q.I. pages on this web site.


Please read our work to date and contact us with any suggestions and corrections.  We are keen to record your reminiscences of village and family events and would be grateful if you would allow us to copy any interesting old photographs and documents in your possession.
