During the course of collecting information about the older houses in Thornbury and the families that lived in them we have amassed a great deal of information about everyday life in Thornbury and how things we take for granted either came to the town after a long struggle or by the ingenuity of some leading inhabitants.  Francis Grace and Edmund Cullimore for example were instrumental in introducing electricity and the cinema in Thornbury.


When we have time we hope to add other pages about the bus service and other aspects of Thornbury life.
