Focus on Madeley
Shropshire Archives helped create the Focus on Madeley website which showcases some of the fascinating images of Madeley’s rich and varied past. The website is now live and well worth visiting if you are interested in the history of the town.
Most of these images come from a much larger collection deposited by the Telford Development Corporation when it wound up its operations. In 2016 Shropshire Archives and Madeley Town Council supported volunteers from Madeley Living History Project who selected and digitised images from the TDC photographic collection and researched the stores behind the pictures.
Many of the images are available on the Shropshire Archives online catalogue. To focus in more detail on the Madeley images and find out more about the people, places and events in Madeley’s history then visit the Focus on Madeley website.
