Steep History Group

With the work on the transcription of the Steep church registers now almost complete, those who have taken part have found it a fascinating and enjoyable process. We have it in mind for our group to continue with work on aspects of village history and have therefore named ourselves the Steep History Group. At the end of September 2015 we represented Steep by taking part in the Local History Day at Petersfield library. New members are most welcome, please contact Fran Box on 266284 if you would like to find out more or join us.
