- Original source material relating to Painswick, and other parishes in
Diocese of Gloucester may be found at the
- Painswick Tombs -
a new (2007) project to catalogue and restore the famous table tombs and
monuments in the churchyard. Added 24 Jun 2007.
- There is also a Cemetery on Painswick Hill (used for burials since about 1850)
and searches can be undertaken by the Parish Clerk - an email address
is available on the Painswick
Parish Council website. Added 24 Jun 2007.
- The Post Office at Painswick is widely claimed to be the
oldest working Post Office in Britain, but apparently this claim is a bit
misleading. The building it is housed in dates from 1428, and thus
it is probably the oldest known building which also contains a Post Office.
It is not known when the Post Office itself first opened its counter, so
there are probably other contenders for the title.
- Painswick Local History Society -
History, Houses, Photos, &c. The site also has details of the War Memorial, and an
animated Map showing how Painswick has grown over the last hundred years.
