A Cheltenham resident-powered project- with thanks to those who lent their voices to the recordings. Thank you to St Peter’s and The Moors Big Local and the Community Chest Fund for their support.
In the process of researching this project I used a great number of sources and am indebted to many brilliant local historians. Pages I found particularly interesting or useful are below
Cheltonia: numerous posts about the history of the town including this brilliant one on walking the River Chelt
A walk along the Honeybourne Line video
A history of Cheltenham video
The online version of the Domesday Book
A history of St Peter’s and The Moors
A history of Hesters Way
Notes on Cotswold Tobacco Growing
Gloucestershire Society for Industrial Archaeology’s article on the mills of Cheltenham
Sound effects from Zapsplat
And as always Wikipedia, which is the most incredible source of free knowledge and which survives purely from donations and crowdsourced time.
