Corner Shops: A Social History

Based on work in the Black Country, a new website has been launched about the social history of the corner shop. The website has been created by the English Heritage Outreach Team and Black Country Touring and aims to inspire others to document and explore the contribution of corner shops to our heritage. Information sourced from The Corner Shop Project has already been presented in a variety of ways: theatre, schools projects, a touring exhibition and an archive. The website features videos, oral history extracts, images and practical case studies to support corner shop themed studies. Visit
