The History Group on the Village Hall Committee have been given a leaflet prepared by WI entitled “The History of Our Village”. This was issued on the 27th November, 1962. It contains information about the Viking invasions back in the 8th Century and how they brought Irish and Scottish thralls with them. The notes are fascinating and continue until 1962. When the materials have been added to the materials held by Thwaites School a display and article will be prepared and exhibited at the Village Hall.
This page offers you an opportunity to write about matters of local interest past and present.
