                       Survey of former and current residents
The Acheron History Project
The Acheron Hall will celebrate its centenary in June 2014. To help commemorate this occasion
the Acheron Hall committee is undertaking to record the history of Acheron with plans to
publish the history in both book and digital form.

We aim to involve both past and present members of the community and incorporate the oral
histories of these local residents to build a history from the earliest times to the present day.
