To write a comprehensive history book on a town such as Redditch and all the various
events and activities that have made up its history would be a major project. We
were always told in business when asked the question “How do you eat an Elephant”
that the answer is “One bite at a time”. Therefore we have started on our comprehensive
history of Redditch in a similar manner - one bite at a time.
Each of the booklets given here is a “bite” of Redditch History. We hope one day
we will have eaten the elephant.
