Buildings and people


In 2009 David Hope and Janet Way started work on an historical walk around Mere. With the backing of Mere Historical Society they tried out an inaugural guided walk which was a great success. David Hope also produced a booklet, “A Mere Meander, a historical trail around Mere”, to support guided walks and as an aid to self-guided walks. Mere Town Council funded an initial quantity of the booklets and Mere Chamber of Trade has funded a subsequent edition. They may be purchased from the library or some local shops

David brought together all his and Janet’s research in a document, “Mere Buildings and People”, which covers the trail in much more detail and lists the sources used. There are a couple of reference copies in the Local History section of the library.

Please note: Some buildings have changed use since the time of writing.

Here is a link to the document.
