About Stroudie Central


What’s Stroudie Central about?

It’s about Stroud in Gloucestershire and the surrounding area.

Stroudie Central makes no claims to be a source of the latest news. It’s a blog (very few of those now) that aims to document the main events around Stroud and to track the ever changing landscape as developers alter it.

The site has lots of information on local walks and on the many old mill buildings from the past cloth industry in the area. These items are found in the ‘Out and About’ and Walks menu.

This site is NOT auto generated by AI software that will sooner or later implode and ruin the Internet by consuming and republishing its own inaccurate and stolen content.

It’s written by a real person that has lived in Stroud valleys since the 70s.
