Welcome to Stonnall History Group

About Us
We are an informal group of Stonnall history enthusiasts and volunteers. Our aim is to discover, gather and publish historical information relating to the village and its neighbourhood.

News
In March 2012, we discovered the remains of a building next to the pinfold. All the evidence indicates that it is the site of the mediæval St Peter's Chapel.

In the following September, we conducted further archaeological investigations. To view the latest information, please take this link.
