The Poole High Street Project was inspired by the BBC’s Turn Back Time scheme, encouraging people to find out more about history on their doorstep. It was launched in November 2010 and involved a team of volunteers researching different aspects and sections of the High Street. The Project concluded with the publication of researched material on the Poole History website: http://www.poolehistory.org.uk and with the publication of The Book of Poole High Street by Jenny Oliver in November 2013.
