Roger Keight - 2006


This history of Fulford in Staffordshire was first compiled by Roger Keight in the autumn of 2001.

Initially it was based on the work of both Alexander Ward, who undertook some early research as part of a school history project in 1996, and Kath Tooth, who undertook further research as part of the Fulford millennium project.

Roger continued and expanded those researches, with some help from Bill Weston, in order that he could better understand the area in which he had lived for the previous thirteen years.

Most of the photographs have been provided by Roger Keight, Kath Tooth and Nola Ward, though a few have been downloaded from the ‘Staffordshire Past Track’ website.

As permission to use some photographs has still to be sought, there are placeholders in the text.
