Cardall’s Corner

Each month the Southam District Advertiser publishes a short article written by one of the Southam Heritage Collection’s members. The article, usually accompanied by a photograph, describes either an item, document or photograph from the Southam Heritage Collection, or it covers an element of local history relating to Southam or the surrounding villages.

Following publication of each article we will include a copy of the article together with any pictures in the Southam History section of this web site. Under the Southam History menu you will find a sub-menu Southam Articles which will show you a list of pages where you will find a series of short articles covering a wide variety of local history topics. We are placing the Cardall’s Corner articles there to establish a single location for all these and similar articles. This will allow you to add comments relevant to each article should you wish to add further information. In addition if you feel you would like to contribute an article to be included in this section please contact us (see click here for contact details) together with a copy of your suggested article.

This page will remain in place for the foreseeable future as it contains the only versions of the 2015 Cardall’s Corner articles in addition to duplicate copies of the 2016 ones.

We would like to express our thanks to the District Advertiser for publishing these articles.
