This website has now changed its focus. It
will no longer be updated on a daily basis with
village news and information. At the moment

Over the years we have accumulated a small amount of
historical information about Hadnall. There
have been a number of enquiries from many parts of
the world with people asking for information or
indeed supplying pictures and stories etc. The
site will therefore continue to make this
information available to everyone - indeed the focus
will be to increase what is offered.
We are not only recording the
'old' history of Hadnall, but also the 'new'
history. As the village changes and grows,
we will be recording these changes to form a
bigger and broader record of Hadnall. We
welcome any contributions from anyone with a story
to tell, old or new pictures. Requests for
information may be accepted as there are folk
living in the village who may know the answers.

Astley Church yard(see link at the side.
Finally we started the survey of the Hadnall
Churchyard. Our May meeting made a start at
visiting each gravestone and check/record the
wording. Photographs were taken and then the
lengthy process of transcribing all the data onto
web pages and then making the information
available here, was undertaken. The work has
now been completed with the interactive map
available for over 300 graves. Comments from
beyond the Group are very welcome too.
Should you discover an error in the data, we
would be very grateful for the information, so
that we can amend it.
We would be interested to hear about any aspect of
the Church's history, particularly about the
We have now Ivy's papers and they have been (in
part) sorted and a database of the contents
created. The material we already have needs
to be catalogued and added to this database.
Once the Village Hall is available to use, we can
get into the cupboard to do some work. The
present database is available here
