For the past four years the Badsey Society has been working on a project backed by the Heritage Lottery Fund to transcribe the letters written throughout the Great War by the Sladden family who lived at Seward House, Badsey. These letters provide a fascinating insight into both army life abroad and domestic life at home, and form the basis of annual readings from the letters, and a book which will be published next year.
