Kettlestone History Project

In 2014 a team of researchers investigated the life stories of the soldiers whose names are on the Kettlestone war memorial. Information about their lives and their service in WW1 was displayed in an exhibition in November 2014 to commemorate 100 years since the start of the conflict. A second exhibition about the villagers in the first part of the 20th century was staged in 2018 to mark 100 years since the Armistice. A Kettlestone History Project website has been set up to preserve the research team’s findings.

KETTLESTONE HISTORY PROJECT COFFEE MORNING

Thank you to all who came to the history project coffee morning.  After expenses we made £120 which has been split between the church tower fund and the history project.

The history project website is now live at www.kettlestonehistory.org  and details our research into Kettlestone during WW1.

The next part of our project is called ‘Village Voices’. 

With the help of Seb White we hope to record villagers talking about their lives, especially during WW2.  The sound clips will be edited by Seb and then uploaded onto the website.

We are also beginning our research into the village during WW2 so if anyone has information  about Kettlestone during this time, we would love to know about it.
