Forge Mill Needle Museum, Bordesley Abbey Visitor Centre
Wed 24 October to Sun 25 November 2018

The Redditch Local History Society explores the antiquity of this river and how it has impacted on the history of Redditch and the local area.

From its very early beginnings in the Ice Age through the Roman invasion, the great Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, the Norman conquest, the expansion of the monasteries and the industrial revolution to the development of the 'New Town.

In this exhibition the RLHS uses photographs, maps and artefacts to illustrate just how important the River Arrow was and still is to Redditch and the local area.

The History that Flows Through the River Arrow

In addition to the permanent exhibits at the Forge Mill Needle Museum and Bordesley Abbey Visitor Centre, we also have a wide variety of interesting and exciting exhibitions throughout the year.

The exhibitions are housed on the middle floor of the Mill building.

There is no additional charge to enter the exhibitions, since the cost is included in our normal admission rates.
