new book

Higham Ferrers 1251–1914 – A portrait of a town and its people through its historic charters

This new commemorative book, by Brenda Lofthouse, Gwen Tobin and Rachel Smyth, is being produced to celebrate the town achieving Heritage Lottery Funding to restore the Town’s Charters for everyone to see and enjoy.

Presented in a family-friendly way, it focuses on how events, both national and local, had an impact on the people of Higham Ferrers.

The book launch will coincide with the Town Council’s Charter Celebration Day on Saturday 29 June 2019 to celebrate the conservation of the Town Charters.
