Warrick Rochester: “Metal detectorists’ finds at Old Quarrington”
(The sources of information included in “Early Years…” are not included in the book itself, to save space.
They can be found, however, elsewhere on this website: “Early Years…” sources.)
Our main source of income for several years came from the sale
of an annual calendar, with a picture of local history interest for each month.
Some back copies of these are still available.
However it has now been decided to publish them on-line.
We ask everyone to respect the copyright on many of these photographs.
Bowburn LHS has presented a number of local guided walks,
as part of the County Council’s Countryside Service regular programme.
(See also Local history walks)
Recent additions to this website include
Transcriptions of local entries in the National Register 1939
This listed every resident in the UK, with addresses, dates of birth and occupations, on 29th September 1939.
See: Local censuses etc. (These entries were updated in November 2019.)
Added in October 2019 is a selection of Electoral Registers.
The most recent addition (January 2021) is a collection of calendars published by Bowburn LHS.
