South Gloucestershire Mines Research Group

This area has a rich mining history. The date of the earliest mines is unknown, while the last coal mine closed as recently as 1963. South Gloucestershire Mines Research Group (SGMRG) was set up by local people to understand, record and where appropriate preserve the remains, of what was once an extensive industry, for the present community and future generations.

Stroudwater Textile Trust

The Stroudwater Textile Trust began its life in 1999 as successor to the Friends of Stroud Museum Textile Group as the result of the wish of a group of local people to recognise and interpret the importance of the woollen industry in the Stroud Valleys at all levels from the local to the international. An essential aspect of the Trust's work is that it considers the present and future of working with wool in the area to be an important part of its purpose as well as that of the past.
