Between 1982 and 1986 Ringmer History Study Group (RHSG) produced 4 volumes of articles on Ringmer and the surrounding area, and on topics of interest to local historians. A fifth volume was planned and the articles written, but owing to various circumstances it never saw the light of day. These volumes have long been out of print and although they do turn up from time to time, the supply is never equal to the demand. It has therefore been decided to make all 4 volumes available on this website.
Before you start reading any of the articles, a few words of warning:
1. Please remember that they were written up to 30 years ago. There may be more information available now, and some things, which may have appeared to be correct at the time of writing, may now be known to be different.
2. Some of the articles have been scanned and are in pdf format. This means that the files are images rather than documents.
Originally the articles were typed on a typewriter and the reproduction is not sharp. It is therefore not possible to use the search facility under the menu on the left-hand side of the website to search the files for a name or topic. If anyone is willing to transcribe any of the articles into a Word document, we will be happy to use it in preference to the pdf. This would make the information much more easily available to everyone. Before you start, do drop a line stating your intention to firstname.lastname@example.org as we’d hate you to find out someone else was already transcribing the same article. Volume 1 is already being transcribed – more help would be much appreciated.
