Over the years I have collected a lot of information which I am sure will be of interest to local people. I am starting to make these available as ‘pdf’ downloads, starting with those immediately below. I am operating the page on a “Honesty Box” principle and I hope you will consider a donation of, say, £1 per document in recognition of the costs involved in obtaining the various documents, getting them professionally scanned, digitally cleaning them up and, of course, maintaining this website. The PayPal donation button is included for this purpose.
I hope that you find these files useful. Keep checking this page -
Click on the ‘download’ button, and then save to your computer. The files are large, so be aware that this might take some time, depending on your internet connection.
