Broadbridge Mill, Wortley & other Houses


Broadbridge Mill, Wortley, has a long and interesting history. Rose Hewlett will use this, and some of her other investigations into Gloucestershire properties, to demonstrate practical ways to find out more about the history of your own house.

There are a wide range of resources available if you want to start researching the history of your house - in libraries and archives, local studies centres, or on specialist websites. Some will charge a fee for their services but many are free.

Before you begin your research try to establish the following key points:


Is your house listed, get a rough estimate of how old your house is; what administrative area your house is in and what do you know about the area?
