Blore Rural District History Society
The reason for the name:-
Blore Heath Rural District
Blore Heath was a rural district in Staffordshire, England from 1894 to 1932.
It was created under the Local Government Act 1894 from that part of the Market Drayton rural sanitary district which was in Staffordshire (the Shropshire part becoming Drayton Rural District). It covered the parishes of Ashley, Mucklestone and Tyrley.
It was abolished by a County Review Order in 1932, and was added to the Newcastle-under-Lyme Rural District.
Because there is already “Blore Heath Heritage Group”, it was decided to drop the word “Heath” from the name.

Hence “we” are called:-  
Blore Rural District History Society
