Local History Notes
This series of leaflets and booklets are printed in-house. They provide an opportunity to publish memories of local residents, and other source material, at low cost.
We would particularly welcome reminiscences of local commercial and industrial activities.
We would also welcome more transcripts of local source material, and also offers from people willing to check draft transcripts.
