Breedon Books' local history titles are a wonderful
mix of archive photographs and fascinating story-telling.
Lavishly illustrated and meticulously researched,
they capture the essence of a town's development through
the years, with accounts of significant events, local
personalities and lost pastimes. For many, they offer
a chance to see old familiar faces, streets and buildings.
For younger readers or new arrivals they are a window
into a world they will never know.
