About Volume 15

VCH Volume: 
Gloucestershire XV - Cheltenham and district
Regency Cheltenham: Well Walk, near the parish church

Work on this volume started in October 2013. The intention is to cover all components of the historic Cheltenham Hundred, namely  the four ancient parishes of Charlton Kings, Cheltenham, Leckhampton, and Swindon (village), plus the adjacent parish of Up Hatherley, and some revision of the southwest part of Prestbury directly adjacent to Cheltenham (originally covered in Vol VIII).

Dr Alex Craven was the editor for Cheltenham until the autumn of 2017. With the assistance of our medievalist Dr Beth Hartland and our consultant editor Dr John Chandler he oversaw the completion of drafts for the period up to 1945. Dr Jan Broadway is acting as editor for the post-war period. The work is supported by a vibrant group of volunteers. If you would be interested in joining them, see our Academy website for more details.
