3. Transcribing the enclosure documents
One of the first jobs was to transcribe the enclosure schedules. Eighteen volunteers helped Maureen Spinks type in the 24,264 words of the Badsey Award Schedules and the 9,638 words of the Aldington Award Schedules. The picture shows Maureen and Irene Grose-Hodge holding actual-size copies.
The Badsey Society Enclosure Map Project was a major village history project running from 2005 to 2007 led by Maureen Spinks. This series of pictures show how the project was run and some of its outcomes. The Society is grateful for a grant received from the Local Heritage Initiative.
