Local historian’s memory lives on in road name

We welcomed guests and dignitaries to celebrate the works of a local historian by naming a road in his honour at our 1779 development in Lightmoor, Telford.

Ken Jones Close commemorates Ken Jones who died three years ago after a lifetime of recording the history of Shropshire, for which he was made an MBE in 2010.

Our West Midlands region worked with the Friends of Ironbridge Gorge Museum, of which Ken was vice-president. He was also central to recording an oral history of the Coalbrookdale coalfield area and saving traces of the Industrial Revolution in the Ironbridge Gorge.

Ken Jones Close was unveiled by Sir Neil Cossons OBE – a former first director of the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust and chairman of English Heritage.

Geraldine King, chairman of the Friends, said: “I’m delighted the road has been named in Ken's honour. He, himself, would have been very self-deprecating about this, but the Friends feel proud on his behalf. Ken Jones Close is near to his birthplace and overlooks the railway line he loved so much.”

Kate Huntington, connections and marketing manager for Linden Homes West Midlands, added: “We are so pleased that Ken’s name will live on in our development and that it will help to educate future home buyers in the outstanding work he did in the area and his contribution to preserving Shropshire’s important history.”
