Brazier Family Archive

In May 1971, David and Iris Brazier organised a village history exhibition at which a number of photos of people and places in Badsey and Aldington were featured.  A report of the event appeared in the Parish Magazine of July 1971.  The Brazier family had been very involved in the community since moving to Badsey in 1934 when David’s father, Albert Jesse Brazier, to set up the family building business.  Following the recent death of Iris Brazier, some of the items from this collection have been donated to The Badsey Society.
