The community of Redditch began at the time of the Bordesley  Abbey, the charter was granted to the Cistercian Order in 1140.

However, the history of the town is much related to the Industrial Revolution in England and its products were known throughout

the world.

These products include needles, fishing tackle, batteries, springs, motorbikes and other light industrial products.

The aim of this site is to give an introduction to the various aspects of the town’s history using a range of ‘pocket history’

presentations and some short descriptive text.
