HKP Building Reports

Our volunteers have produced many historical reports describing historical and architectural features of significant and interesting houses and buildings in Kidderminster. The collection of reports (presently numbering 195) can be viewed or downloaded as via the links below. (Updated 4 August 2020). 

Printed copies of the report collection are held by the Museum of Carpet, the Worcestershire Archives at the Hive, and are also in Kidderminster Library (where they are presently stored in the Ephemera section).

On the left is the first page of one of the reports which concerns the architecture and history of the Baxter Church and it predecessor The Old Meeting.



IndexA comprehensive index, which includes most places and family names contained within the collection of reports, has been prepared and is updated from time to time. This can be viewed and/or downloaded by clicking INDEX (last updated 26 June 2020).
